Hello Amazing Reps,
As we talked about in the reps call, we have delineated some steps that will help us tackle the challenges of the reps mentorship program. These steps do not intend to be a detailed plan of actions, but a collaborative effort, so I am here to ask for your input. To do so, please complete this survey but, before doing so, read a little further to understand why we are asking these questions.
The first thing we did was to try to understand what were the main challenges of the Mentorship program.
We started to collect feedback through informal chats and Mentors’ meetings. At the Virtual All Hands, we asked Reps to vote over which challenges they think are most important, and this was the result:
Clearly define (and possibly re-define) what is the role and the function of a mentor
Clear guidelines for Mentorship activities
What to do when a mentor becomes inactive
Now we are taking the next step. We are trying to collect more information on what are currently the main functions of a mentor and on what do you think a mentor’s role should be. Furthermore, we are trying to understand what happens when a mentor becomes inactive, and why that might happen.
To understand this, we need your feedback:
- Please complete this survey. The survey is aimed at both mentors and mentees.
- Comment on this post! Please give your opinion around a mentor’s role and/or issues with mentors’ inactivity.
After we have collected enough feedback we will proceed to the next steps:
- Defining what should be the role of a mentor
- Drew up a proposal on how we can arrive there
- Collecting feedback on that proposal
Thank you very much for your help!
