2021 Programme


How does it work?



Interested in learning from others? Or sharing your UN story?

Together mentoring programme









Introducing Together, an innovative new mentoring programme in which staff of all levels and backgrounds can participate.

Join our 2021 programme! 

**Mentee registration is now closed due to overwhelming demand**

Mentors of all levels, from General Service through senior leaders, are still needed.

If you have several years of UN experience and would like to share your insight and knowledge, please consider joining.

Registration is now open:

  • 15 - 26 February for mentees from Secretariat and non-Secretariat entities.
  • 15 February - 12 March for mentors from Secretariat and non-Secretariat entities.

The pairing process will take place in mid-March.

What's different about this programme?

  • An external software platform is used to pair staff
  • Pairings are based on mentor and mentee preferences.
  • Human choice is also involved! Mentees review mentor profiles and rank their top five preferences.
  • Pair easily with someone from another duty station or non-Secretariat entity
  • Use Microsoft Teams meetings to meet at your convenience
