Together mentoring programme

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

The first programme of 2021 is underway

It has resulted in more than 650 pairings of mentors and mentees!

Participants are encouraged to meet every 3 weeks between late-March and end-July.

We will hold another programme in the fall. Email mentoring@un.org to receive updates.

 

What's different about Together Mentoring?

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