How long does it take to find a mentor?

  • It may take a few weeks for mentees to find a mentor.
  • Mentees can save their favorite mentors to a “wish list” in case they are not available now.
  • Mentees will also receive automatic updates about newly registered mentors. Try not to get discouraged easily and keep reaching out! 
  • The OHR Project Team supports participants through an orientation webinar, periodic support sessions and resources on this site and on the Together platform. 


Are mentors screened?

  • The OHR Project Team does not have a screening or certification process for mentors.
  • Mentors are expected to attend or watch a recording of an Orientation Webinar and to read the Mentor Handbook and other programme materials.
  • Mentors are also expected to attend monthly support sessions and to write to with any questions.  



  • UN System staff of all categories, levels, job networks, and contract types are welcome to join as mentors, mentees and networking partners.  
  • Mentors should have at least two years of work experience in the UN System or at least 5 years of total work experience (in and outside the UN System).  

Other categories of personnel, such as interns, individual contractors, consultants, military personnel are not eligible at this time.
