PROGRAMME BASICS

Mentors of all levels (GS and related categories through senior leaders) from all job networks are eligible.

Mentees of all levels (GS and related categories through senior leaders) from all job networks are eligible.

All participants must have Fixed-term, Continuing or Permanent appointments.

Yes, Non-Secretariat agencies are invited to participate.

Yes. When you register you may select both options.

Mentors can choose to be paired with up to 3 mentees at a time in networking or mentoring arrangements.  Mentees can be paired with up to two mentors in networking or mentoring arrangements.

You can choose a mentor who can hold meetings in English, French or both languages.

In 2022 the programme changed to a new format. There are no longer fixed start- and end-dates for the mentoring periods. Mentees and mentors agree on the number of meetings through the platform at the start of their relationships. It is recommended that the mentoring pairs have at least 3 meetings over a 2-3 month period.

There is also a networking option. Mentees can request 1-2 networking meetings with a mentor. These should happen over a 1-2 month period.

Yes. Confidentiality is a cornerstone in successful mentoring. Mentees and mentors should not share information that was discussed in their meetings with others.

Mentees and mentors can plan the meeting frequency. We encourage you to meet once every 3 weeks but this is not required.

Definitely! Virtual meetings make it possible to connect.

OHR and other entities have held various types of mentoring initiatives over the years. As we are such a large organization, there is room for different players in this area. This initiative is similar to other initiatives in that the purpose is to connect staff with each other to facilitate growth and learning. It is different than other programmes in that an online platform aids the pairing process. All categories and levels of staff are included and it will enable people to connect across duty stations and types of UN entities.

We will not be informing participants’ managers that they have joined this programme. Mentors and mentees can, however, let their managers know of their participation.

If you decide you are no longer interested in the programme, you may pause/freeze your account. Go to ‘Home’ > ‘Profile’>’ My Settings’>’Enrollment Status.’ From there click ’Freeze my account’ in the enrollment status. By using the ‘freeze my account’ option, you will not be considered during the pairing process; or if you are currently paired, your pairing will come to an end.

However, if you decide to unfreeze and participate again all your profile information will be available.

If you are UN Secretariat staff, Together emails may be redirected to the “Other” folder at the top of your Outlook screen. There is also a possibility that they have been re-directed to your “Junk Email” folder.

To ensure that you receive all emails, please remove the Other folder from your Outlook screen. This is very important, especially for mentors. In the past, emails from the Together platform have been missed by some participants because Outlook directed them to the Other folder.

If your Other folder is in use, you will see it just above your email window:

To remove the Other folder, please review these instructions. For many of you it will mean going to View on the Outlook menu and then clicking Show Focused Inbox.

There is also a possibility that they have been re-directed to your “Junk Email” folder.

For non-Secretariat staff, if you think you are not receiving Together emails, please notify your IT focal point about the problem in your entity.  Also please notify us at mentoring@un.org.

Yes, it is called the Mentoring Agreement and it is in the Together platform. On the Home tab, scroll down to “Current matches”, click on your mentor/mentee name, scroll down to “Learning Plan” and then click “Mentoring Agreement”. Fill this out and then consider sharing it with your mentor to get her/his input. You may also ask her/him to sign it although this is not required. Note that this document also stipulates that all information exchanged in the sessions is confidential and should not be shared with anyone.

 

REGISTRATION

Please make sure you are using the correct link and inserting your professional email (except in the case of retirees who should use their personal email addresses). If the problem persists, please email us at mentoring@un.org.

For UN Secretariat registrants, we have pre-populated some questions with data from an employee file snapshot to ease your experience answering the questionnaire. Please note that some info might be outdated, in which case you are welcome to change the option pre-selected for you.

Some of them will, while others will only be visible to the administrator on the HR project team. While you are filling out the questionnaire, you can see which questions/answers will be visible in your profile.

Yes, you can edit your response in your profile (see: Pairing - "How do I edit my profile?").

You can go to your profile and edit your answer to the first question about whether you would like to be a mentor, a mentee or both (See: Pairing - "How do I edit my profile?").

If you have registered as a mentee, you can begin searching for a mentor on the platform.  You can review mentor profiles to get a sense of their background, experience and what they might offer in a mentoring relationship. Their profile may include a link to their LinkedIn profile which you can also review to get more details. Use the Together platform filters to narrow your search and find someone within a specific job network, entity or duty station (etc.) if you wish.

You may send one request to a mentor and save others to a “wish-list” to perhaps contact at a later time. You will be notified by an email from the platform if the mentor accepts. If s/he does not, then you can request a different mentor.

If you have registered as a mentor, you will receive an email from the platform asking you to accept or decline an invitation to mentor someone or meet them for a networking meeting. You can review the mentee’s profile on the platform and/or on LinkedIn to help in your decision-making.

Once you are registered, use this link to log in to the platform:  https://my.togetherplatform.com.

An index number is a unique number assigned to each staff member upon recruitment at the United Nations Secretariat or other UN entities.

 

PAIRING

Together Mentoring has an open, ongoing registration and pairing process. Therefore, if you are not paired with someone right away, you can keep returning to the site to search for a different networking partner or mentor/mentee. 

Yes, mentees can choose their mentors. Once you register, you can begin searching for a mentor on the platform.  You can review mentor profiles to get a sense of their background, experience and what they might offer in a mentoring relationship. Their profile may include a link to their LinkedIn profile which you can also review. Use the Together platform filters to narrow your search and find someone within a specific job network, entity or duty station (etc.), if you wish.

Mentors can accept or decline an invitation to mentor someone. They have three days to do so before the request expires. If the approval deadline falls on a weekend, it will be pushed to Monday. If a mentor declines someone, they will likely be paired with another mentee.

All mentees will see all available mentors who have the same preference for either English or French for the mentoring sessions. In other words, if you have marked that you only want to speak French in your mentoring sessions, then you will not see mentors that want to speak English in the mentoring sessions.

General Service mentees may use the Together platform filters to narrow their search and find someone within a specific job network, level, entity or duty station (etc.) They can request to be paired with any other category of staff, including Professionals or above.

Yes. To assist in decision-making during the pairing process, participants can review mentee and mentor profiles.

To edit your profile, click 'Profile' and then go to My Programs > Find the programme 'Together Mentoring and Networking Programme' > then select the pencil icon. The questionnaire will be displayed on the screen.

Users will have to edit their questionnaire one question at a time. Please make sure to press ‘Save’ (blue button) when you are finished to save the changes made. Please note, the option to Change all your responses is no longer available.

. Can mentors see a list of which mentees have requested them?

No, mentors cannot see a list of mentees who requested them. They can accept or decline one mentee at a time, through responding to emails from the platform. These requests expire after three days. If the approval deadline falls on a weekend, it will be pushed to Monday.

Mentees will be able to review mentor profiles on the platform which is fed from the registration questionnaire. Mentees can also view LinkedIn profiles of mentors, if available.

We do not recommend contacting your preferred mentors outside the platform about a potential pairing. Please allow the system to pair you with one of your preferred mentors instead. This will facilitate the overall process for all participants. Also, keep in mind that some mentors have offered to pair with two mentees and may be at capacity. And it might be uncomfortable for a mentor to be contacted directly; they may feel badly about saying no due to time constraints or other reasons. You may try again at a different time or search for another suitable mentor.

Mentors and mentees will receive emails from the "Together platform – United Nations Mentoring Programme "– about the respective processes. Mentees will need to log into the platform, search for a mentor and then contact the person through the platform. Then mentors will receive emails about proposed mentees.

When you are in the Together platform, go to the Home tab, then scroll down to “Current matches”, click on your mentor/mentee name, scroll down to the “Session Plan” section and click on “End Pairing”.

 

MENTORING SESSIONS

Mentees should take the initiative in scheduling sessions but either party is free to do so. Before booking a first session with your mentor, it’s best to ask about their availability, for example through email.

Please note that you can schedule sessions through your Microsoft Outlook calendar (used by Secretariat staff) or you can do so through the Together platform. We prefer you to use the platform because it allows the project team to monitor meeting activity, but it is up to you.

Some notes on scheduling through the Together platform:

- The Together platform’s calendar feature is separate from Microsoft Outlook (used by Secretariat staff) but invitations sent through Together will appear in Outlook. One cannot, however, see the availability of a colleague through Together’s calendar or automatically link to an MS Teams meeting. You can however add the link after to the generated Outlook invite.

- To schedule a session through the Together platform, first click on your mentee/mentor’s name (on your home page, under ‘Pairings’). Under ‘To Do’ you will find a notification named ‘Book your next session’ and all you will have to do is click ‘Book Session’ (blue button). A calendar will open. Next: select a date and time to meet. Then click ‘Send Invite’ (blue button).

At the beginning of the programme, we recommend that you only schedule an initial session. Consult with your mentor/mentee before you schedule recurring sessions. Please note that if you schedule meetings through the platform, it will send you reminders to schedule additional sessions after each one is done.

Follow the steps above to open the calendar (see: "How do I schedule the meetings/sessions with my mentee or mentor?"). After selecting dates and times, click on the ‘Set Recurring Invite’ on the top right-hand corner of the screen. Select the meeting frequency you prefer and when you are ready click ‘Send Invites’.

Shadowing exercises these days need to be tailored for remote work arrangements. In some ways, this is limiting. But it is still possible.

Consider the following:

  • A mentee could join a mentor in an important meeting as an observer
  • A mentor could share a draft project plan with a mentee and ask for input. Then the pair could discuss. The mentor could share the next version of the plan to demonstrate its evolution.
  • A mentor could assign research projects to their mentee if they are brief and fairly straightforward in nature.

Each pair should decide on the duration of each session. Perhaps, for the first one, schedule a 45 mins to 1-hour meeting. Some sessions, such as a shadowing exercise, may have a time limit that suits a given event/meeting.

These are some of the topics mentees may want to discuss with a mentor: 

  • Navigating the UN culture
  • Experience across duty stations
  • Experience across types of UN entities (Headquarters/ missions/ UN agencies/ funds/ programmes)
  • Experience across job networks/families
  • Moving up or laterally
  • Improving performance reviews
  • Managing others
  • Managing up (how to navigate relationships with one’s managers)
  • Learning new skills
  • Dealing with challenging work environments
  • Challenges with job satisfaction
  • Promoting a disability-inclusive workplace and culture
  • Settling into a new duty station
  • Improving work-life balance

We suggest mentees and mentors use the first sessions to align expectations and agree on ones they would like to address. Please refer to the session agendas and the handbooks for recommendations of exercises and activities that can enrich these meetings.

If you have a technical problem with the Together platform you can use the chat box on the bottom left-hand corner of the platform or send an email to support@togetherplatform.com.

If you need additional technical help or have other questions about the programme, contact the project team at mentoring@un.org.

To see all meeting/session agendas, go to ‘Home’ > ‘Your programs’ then click ‘Together Mentoring and Networking Programme’ and then ‘Session Overview’.

To prepare for a specific session or for booking a session, go to ‘Home’, scroll down to ‘Your Mentorship’, click on the ‘name of the mentor’ or the ‘name of the mentee’ you are planning the session with, then scroll down to see all sessions available. Click on the ‘Session X’ and the agenda should be at the top of the screen. Click ‘View More’ to see the full agenda.

Mentor and mentee Handbooks can be found in the Resources area of the Together platform. Go to ‘Home’ > ‘Your Programs’ > ‘Together Mentoring and Networking Programme’.

Handbooks are also available in the 'Resources' section on the HR Portal.

There are also videos and articles about best practices in mentoring to provide perspective and inspiration. On the platform go to your ‘Home’ >'Your Programs,’ > ‘Together Mentoring and Networking Programme’ and scroll down the page.

Some participants do continue their relationship outside the programme once their formal Together mentoring relationship ends. If you would like to do this, please discuss it with your mentor or mentee.

When you are in the Together platform go to the Home tab and scroll down to “Current matches.” Click the name of a given mentor/mentee, then scroll down to “Session Plan,” select the sessions that you have completed already and click “Mark as done.” You will be prompted to provide feedback for the sessions. Please note that if you and your mentor/mentee schedule sessions outside Together and do not mark the sessions as done for 3 months or longer the platform will automatically end your pairing.

While we prefer that you use Together so that we can track participation, you may choose to use Zoom, Teams or another software. Please be sure to mark you sessions as complete in the platform. To do this, go the Home tab and scroll down to “Current matches.” Click the name of the mentor/mentee, then scroll down to “Session Plan” and select the sessions that you have completed already and click “Mark as done.” You will be prompted to provide feedback for the sessions.

Please note that if you and your mentor/mentee schedule sessions outside Together and do not mark the sessions as done for 3 months or longer the platform will automatically end your pairing.

 

MENTORS

In our open approach, staff of many levels can serve as mentors - from General Service and related categories to senior leaders. Each of us has something to share with colleagues who are new to the Organization or have less experience. Mentors from all job networks are welcome.

All participants must have Fixed-term, Continuing or Permanent appointments.

The programme includes orientation webinars for mentors and mentees and written guidance including comprehensive handbooks and session agendas to help guide your conversations. There are also videos and articles about general best practices to provide perspective and inspiration.

In this programme, mentors and mentees can choose between networking meetings (1-2 sessions) or longer mentoring relationship (3-6 sessions) and can also add meetings as they go. Mentors and mentees can also determine how often they will meet. For mentoring relationships, we encourage participants to meet at least every 3 weeks.
 

Mentors can review the profiles of mentees who request them to get a sense of their background and experience. The profile may include a link to their LinkedIn profile which mentors can also review. 

Mentors can accept or decline an invitation to mentor someone. They have three days to do so before the request expires. If the approval deadline falls on a weekend, it will be pushed to Monday. If a mentor declines someone, they will likely receive another request from a different mentee.

No, mentors cannot see a list of mentees who requested them. They can accept or decline one mentee at a time, through responding to emails from the platform. These requests expire after three days. If the approval deadline falls on a weekend, it will be pushed to Monday.

If you forget to respond to the initial email, you’ll receive a second one 48 hours later. After three days, the invitation expires. Please note that if the approval deadline falls on a weekend, it will be pushed to Monday.

As a mentor, you can help your mentee by:

  • asking questions about their development goals and career aspirations
  • providing guidance on her/his professional development goals
  • providing guidance in a general or specific professional area
  • giving direct, honest and constructive feedback to the questions they ask
  • sharing your networks and professional contacts

As a mentor you are responsible for:

  1. Reviewing the mentor handbook
  2. Establishing mutual trust and respect with the mentee
  3. Working with the mentee to determine objectives for the mentoring relationship
  4. Maintaining interaction and support with the mentee
  5. Challenging and encouraging the mentee appropriately to facilitate growth
  6. Filling out a pre- and post-programme survey

A First Reporting Officer (FRO) is responsible for setting expectations about a specific workload and goals and communicating with their staff about their performance against the goals. A mentor’s role is mainly to help a staff member strategize about larger level career aspirations. Of course, conversations may cover current work situations or problems that a mentee is experiencing. A mentor, however, can offer limited feedback on the details of such situations because they are not part of the team. In these cases, it is best that a mentor helps the mentee uncover different perspectives about a given problem and not become directly involved with it.

Open communication is the key to any good relationship. Throughout the mentoring relationship you should speak with your mentee about how it’s going and whether you are fulfilling the goals set out at the beginning of your relationship.

Yes, and we encourage you to do so! Once you have finished your meetings with one mentee, you may receive a request from another one.
You can be paired with up to 3 mentees at a time if you have the capacity. And during periods when you are busy or need a break from mentoring, you can simply hide your profile and then unhide it when you're ready to participate again. 

Some personal information will be stored on the platform. The HR project team in DMSPC has access to the information; it enables them to facilitate pairing, assess the programme’s progress and make improvements. No information that reveals the identity of participants will be shared with UN staff outside the project team.

Below are the types of information referred to above:

  • Your responses to the registration questionnaire. This includes basic identity details (name, index number, grade, etc.) and responses to questions about your skills, goals.
  • Information about the number of sessions/meetings you have with your mentee/mentor and the dates/times of the meetings (if you scheduled them through the platform).
  • Responses to short surveys about individual sessions you had with your mentee/mentor.

Please note that the HR project team does not have access to notes and action items you record on the platform after your sessions. This is only viewable by mentees or by mentees and mentors if both have recorded notes.

You may activate and deactivate your profile anytime. However, if you are no longer interested in being part of the programme, and would like to delete your account, please communicate your decision to the project team at mentoring@un.org. They will take the necessary actions.

There are a few reasons you might wish to decline a request from a mentee. You might feel, after reading their profile, that you are not equipped to help or guide them. Or you might have just accepted a different mentee's request and realize that you don't have the capacity to take on two. Please accept or decline a request within 3 days. When you decline the mentee, she or he will have the ability to search for another mentor.

In this programme the minimum number of mentees a mentor can take on is 1. We recommend that you only take as many mentees as you have time and capacity for. You may change your mentee capacity based on your availability anytime during the programme. (See Mentors 'How can mentors set or change their mentee capacity?')

If you sense that your mentee is struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse or another type of mental health issue, you can encourage them to seek help through staff counselling services. This page has information on how to access a staff counselor in a range of UN system entities. And this page has information on accessing external doctors or therapists with UN health insurance.

It is important for mentors to encourage the use of mentoring sessions for job- or career-related issues only. Of course, sometimes conversations veer into personal topics and this is fine, to some extent. But mentors are not expected to counsel staff on personal, family or mental health challenges.

Mentors can set and change their mentee capacity anytime. Go to ‘Profile’ > ‘Together Mentoring and Networking Programme’ > ‘Manage My Capacity’ > ‘Change capacity’> ’Save’.

After thoughtful consideration, if you decide you would like to end a current pairing, go to ‘Home’> ‘Your Mentorship’ > ‘Mentee’s name > ‘End pairing’ > Select a reason for ending the pairing >’Stop Pairing’.

Your mentee capacity will increase, and the mentee will receive an email notification that the pairing has ended. You may soon receive a new request to pair from a different mentee.

If you decide you are no longer interested in the programme, you may pause/freeze your account. Go to ‘Home’ > ‘Profile’>’ My Settings’>’Enrollment Status’. From there click ’Freeze my account’ in the enrollment status. By using the ‘freeze my account’ option, you will not be considered during the pairing process; or if you are currently paired, your pairing will come to an end.

However, if you decide to unfreeze and participate again all your profile information will be available.

You may unfreeze your account. Go to ‘Home’ >Profile’>’ My Settings’>’Enrollment Status’. From there click ’X Freeze my account’ in the enrollment status field. You will see it change to ‘Enrolled.’ Your profile information will be activated, and you will be able to pair again.

If you feel your mentee needs additional guidance or help in navigating difficult relationships or conflicts, you could suggest that they talk to a colleague from the Office of the UN Ombudsman and Mediation Service. They can explain the various routes to resolving difficult situations. This service in multiple languages to all Secretariat staff, regardless of location. If your mentee is with an UN system entity outside the Secretariat, encourage him/her to inquire about Ombudsperson services in their entity.

 

MENTEES

Staff of all levels - from General Service and related categories to senior leaders - and job networks are eligible.
All participants must have Fixed-term, Continuing or Permanent appointments.

Research shows that a meaningful mentoring relationship can directly affect an individual’s ability to succeed in their career. Mentoring accelerates career development, enhances your professional network and increases your perspective and knowledge of different functions.

Once you register, you can begin searching for a mentor. You can review mentor profiles to get a sense of their background, experience and what they might offer in a mentoring relationship. Their profile may include a link to their LinkedIn profile which you can also review. Use the Together platform filters to narrow your search and find someone within a specific job network, entity or duty station. You may choose to send a mentoring request and save other preferred mentors in a wish-list.

Mentors can accept or decline an invitation to mentor someone. They have three days to do so before the request expires. If the approval deadline falls on a weekend, it will be pushed to Monday.

Not necessarily. They may have just accepted another mentee before your request – and therefore they are not available. Or they may not have seen your request by email and it expired after 3 days.  

In the Together approach, mentees are paired with a mentor based on preferences they express in the initial questionnaire. Mentees also have the chance to set their own goals for the mentoring period. This differs from an organization-driven approach in which a human resources team reviews participant profiles and determines who will be paired with whom.

The programme includes orientation webinars for mentors and mentees and written guidance including comprehensive handbooks and session agendas to help guide your conversations. There are also videos and articles about general meeting best practices to provide background and inspiration.

General Service mentees may use the Together platform filters to narrow their search and find someone within a specific job network, level, entity or duty station (etc.) They can request to be paired with any other category of staff, including Professionals or above.

You are responsible for being an active participant in the mentoring relationship. Consider yourself the manager or driver of your own learning in this programme: it’s your responsibility to plan what you’d like to achieve from the relationship. In addition, as you engage with your mentor, you should:

  • review the mentee handbook
  • be clear on your professional development goals
  • ensure timely and responsive communication with your mentor
  • keep commitments agreed with your mentor
  • fill out end-of-session surveys each time you meet, if possible
  • fill out a pre- and post-programme survey
  • follow through on advice and suggestions provided by your mentor if you are in agreement with them.

The project team will not be informing participants’ managers that they have joined this programme. It is up to the participant to decide whether to disclose or not this information.

It is natural that not all mentor-mentee pairings work out. If you feel that you and your mentor may not be a good fit, try watching this short video on overcoming common challenges. You can also contact the project team at mentoring@un.org and schedule a consultation. If you are sure that you’d like to find a new mentor, our platform can help you “unpair” from your current mentor and request a new one.

To do so, go to ‘Home’ > 'Your Mentorship'. Click on ‘Mentor’s name‘End pairing’  >select a reason for ending the pairing >’Stop Pairing’

You will be redirected to the ‘Mentor directory’ to choose a new mentor. Your prior mentor will receive an email notification that the pairing has ended.

The most common cause of relationship decline is a lack of time invested by one or both parties. At your first meeting, be sure to discuss your availability in coming months and how frequently you can meet.  It is ok if you need to postpone some meetings but try to reschedule promptly.

Unrealistic expectations can also result in an unsuccessful mentoring relationship. Sometimes a mentor can overload a mentee with information or expect him/her to follow the mentor’s suggestions too closely. And sometimes mentees may expect mentors to provide more support and direction than they are able to.

In the first few meetings, mentees should describe the goals they have for the mentoring relationship. Mentors should give honest feedback about which goals they can help with.

After thoughtful consideration, if you decide you would like a new mentor, you can end your current pairing and request a new one. To do so, go to ‘Home’ > 'Your Mentorship'. Click on ‘Mentor’s name‘End pairing’  >select a reason for ending the pairing >’Stop Pairing’

You will be redirected to the ‘Mentor directory’ to choose a new mentor. Your prior mentor will receive an email notification that the pairing has ended.

Throughout the programme, before or after each session, you are welcome to take some meeting notes on what you have discussed with or learned from your mentor.

To access this feature go to ‘Home’> Your Mentorship. Then select the relevant mentee. Scroll down to the Session Plan section. Select and click on a session that you want to leave notes for. Leave your notes and click Save at the bottom right-hand of the screen.

Some personal information will be stored on the platform. The HR project team has access to the information; it enables them to facilitate pairing, assess the programme's progress and make improvements. No information that reveals the identity of participants will be shared with UN staff outside the Office of Human Resources project team.

Below are the types of information referred to above:

  • Your responses to a registration questionnaire. This includes basic identity details (name, index number, grade, etc.) and responses to questions about your skills, goals.
  • Information about the number of sessions/meetings you have with your mentee/mentor and the dates/times of the meetings (if you schedule them through the platform).
  • Responses to short surveys about individual sessions you had with your mentee/mentor.

Please note that the Office of Human Resources does not have access to notes and action items you record on the platform after your sessions. This is only viewable by mentees or by mentees and mentors if both have recorded notes.

 If you decide you are no longer interested in the programme, you may pause/freeze your account, Go to ‘Home’ > ‘Profile’>’ My Settings’>’Enrollment Status.’  From there click ’Freeze my account’ in the enrollment status.  By using the ‘freeze my account’ option, you will not be considered during the pairing process; or if you are currently paired, your pairing will come to an end.

However, if you decide to unfreeze and participate again all your profile information will be available.

Try to be flexible and patient if your mentor needs to reschedule or postpone sessions. She or he may very much look forward to talking to you but it can be difficult when one’s schedule is in a very busy phase. Send reminder emails to the person if you haven’t heard back about a rescheduled session. Take a look at this Forbes article on how to navigate mentoring relationships when time and attention is in high demand.

Mentees can be paired with two mentors, maximum, at a time (for either networking or mentoring purposes).

This may be possible if you both agree to register into Together platform. After registration the mentee will have to officially request the mentor to pair.

You may unfreeze your account. To do so go to ‘Home’ >Profile’>’ My Settings’>’Enrollment Status’. From there click ’X Freeze my account’ in the enrollment status field. You will see it change to ‘Enrolled.’ Your profile information will be activated, and you will be able to pair again.

After thoughtful consideration, if you decide you would like to end a current pairing, please go to ‘Home’ > ‘Your Mentorship.’ Click on your ‘Mentor’s name > ‘End pairing’ > Select a reason for ending the pair >’Stop Pairing’.

If a mentee has changed their mind and wants to discontinue with a given mentor they can end the pairing from the platform. To do so go to ‘Home’ > ‘Your Mentorship.’  Click on your ‘Mentor’s name‘End pairing’ > Select a reason for ending the pairing >’Stop Pairing’.
