Community Mentors Program [Cycle 1] - call for prospective Mentors/Mentees!

 

 

Community Mentors Program - Cycle 1 Applications now open!Community Mentors Program - Cycle 1 Applications now open!

 

 

Hi everyone,

 

Many of you have indicated interest in participating in the upcoming Community Mentors Program. This program strives to help connect people, and bridge the gap for those who may feel like they've had challenges finding a mentor in the technical field/in their area of technology specialization. Whether you're a woman in technology looking for a technical role model to help you accelerate your career, or a fresh college hire looking for someone to guide you as you work to ramp up on your tech skills, or perhaps you're from a culture where people tend to be traditionally shy in seeking help from others - this community for you, with the goal of enabling you to achieve the important mentorship you need to achieve success and get ahead in your technical careers. 

 

Many of our mentors have decades of technical experience in their chosen areas and are now ready to give back to the community by helping others more junior in their career, those looking to switch technology areas but are unsure of how to go about it or those who simply need that bit of extra support to attain their next level of tech expertise. 

 

We are currently accepting applications for those interested to become mentors, and/or mentees in Cycle 1 of the Community Mentors Program. If you would like to participate in the program, please fill in the questionnaire here.

 

Applications for Cycle 1 close on February 23rd, and we will inform the selected mentor/mentee pairs once the matching has been finalized.

 

Looking forward to your participation, and let's get the mentoring started!
