ASBTE 2022 Mentorship Program


ASBTE believes that mentorship is critical to the development of our members, regardless of career stage. As such, we will organise a mentorship program that will launch at our April meeting. If you are interested in being a mentor or a mentee, please read more below.

What is a mentor?
A mentor is a professional, trusting relationship based on guidance, support, and encouragement that is mutually beneficial for both the mentor and the mentee. While mentorship can be formal or informal, the ASBTE is organising a formal mentorship experience for interested members.

What the program entails?
Mentees will be matched with a mentor from a provided list based on their preferences. The scope, time, and topics discussed will vary between pairs and will be decided between the mentor and mentee. Ostensibly the program will run for 6 months. However, if both
parties feel that they are benefiting from the experience, they are encouraged to continue.

The program will launch at the ASBTE conference (if both parties are attending). This will provide the pair a chance to meet face-to-face and schedule a time for their first meeting. At the first meeting they will scope out what topics they would like to discuss and how frequently they would like to meet.

How to participate - now open for round 2, 2022
