Our Mentoring Program
Goals: This program will offer inclusive, LGBTQ+ friendly mentoring to members of the APS DPP Pride community, aimed at professional development and support.
Participants: The program is open to all members of the APS DPP Pride community, including but not limited to those identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, non-binary, or asexual/aromantic.
If you would like to be mentored, please directly contact one of our listed mentors.
If you are interested in being a mentor, please contact us at: email@example.com
We will help you set up a mentoring plan, which will provide structure such as frequency of meetings and goals, tailored to your needs and preferences. This mentoring plan will help us monitor the success of this program.
Benefits: both mentees and mentors will help build an inclusive Pride community within APS DPP. Additionally,
- gain advice on professional development from more experienced members of the community.
- build their professional networks through their mentor’s connections.
- learn about the challenges faced by more junior members of the community, and use this information to positively influence the institutions which they are part of.
- build their professional networks through their mentee’s connections.
Confidentiality: There is an expectation of confidentiality in all communication between mentors and mentees. No information may be shared from any communication without explicit permission from the other party unless there is a concern of imminent harm to oneself or others.
Accountability: Mentors and mentees will be expected to agree to a code of conduct outlining acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Regular surveys of mentors and mentees will be used to evaluate outcomes.
