Together mentoring programme

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

What's new or different about this programme?

  • The HR project team uses an external software platform to pair staff
  • Pairings are based on preferences that mentors and mentees enter at registration.
  • Human choice is also involved! Mentees get to review mentor profiles and rank their top five preferences.
  • Pairings across duty stations are encouraged and supported through use of Microsoft Teams
  • Participants can be mentored by staff in other UN entities such as UNICEF, UNDP and many more
