How it works?
It is a program where we match mentors with mentees based on their preferences and on what they want to learn.
You commit with your mentee or mentor to meet for 30 minutes once every two weeks at least. And it’s up-to-you what you want to get out of it! The mentee sets the goals and defines what they want to learn. Same for the mentor, you define in which areas you want to coach.
Here are some answers to our most popular questions 👉
🤔 Can I be a mentor and mentee at the same time?
Yes of course! You can register now to be a mentor, and later on, you can register to be a mentee. You will be matched with a mentor and a mentee based on your preferences.
🙋 I’m not a lady, can I join?
We welcome mentors and mentees of all genders. However, as currently there is a gender imbalance in tech we have taken the decision to prioritise ladies as mentees. Which means if there is a shortage of mentors, female mentees will be matched first.
We thank you for your understanding!
💸 How much does it cost?
Mentorship Program is absolutely free!
🤑 Will I get payed as a mentor?
No you will not get payed. Mentorship program is free for mentees and organised by volunteers.

It' time for us to dig through an extensive Excel sheet to find you a perfect match. As soon as you're matched you will receive an intro email from us.
Keep in mind, after this point it's up to you to schedule a meeting.
Start of the Mentorship Program

This year the program will run from April 2021 to August 2021. The idea is to match experienced designers, researchers, and PMs with less experienced designers who are early in their careers.
The mentees will be challenged to work on their goals while utilising the guidance and support of their dedicated mentors.
