Meet Your Mentor is looking for you!

Meet Your Mentor has started recruiting mentors and mentees this week and we are happy to see the applications reaching us. We are at the beginning and still need more of you to apply.

It wasn’t easy but we have managed to organize a beautiful location in the center of Amsterdam for the kick off  at the 26th of November. If a match with a student or mentor is possible you will be invited to this kick off on time with a personal invitation. You will enjoy a lovely program where you will meet your mentee or mentor*.

If you are a professional and willing to coach a mentee, please click here for more information. Or send this news item to someone you know who would be suitable as a mentor. If you are a student keep an eye on the social media platforms of UvA as we will start promoting here in the coming weeks. Click here for more information about the program. If you are interested to enroll now, please click on this link. You are asked to be present at a previous meeting on the 6th of November. If a match is possible you will be invited timely to the kick off at the 26th of November as well.

Hope to see your application!

* The meeting will be held in according with the RIVM-covid19 regulations.

It matches business professionals with third years and master’s students of FEB, FMG and FGw. The platform gives talented students the opportunity to be mentored by people who value (multi)cultural backgrounds and are trained within the context of Diversity and Inclusion.

Participants are asked to make a six-month commitment in which you will be investing at least 12,5 hours in total. Meet Your Mentor will be piloted at the UvA this year at FEB, FMG and FGw. Other faculties will follow after this pilot.
