Wave-Maker Mentorship Program
Our Career and Alumni team worked with the Alumni Advisory Alumni Council to define Wave-Maker Mentorship, a partnership between Wave-Makers where insights and experiences are exchanged to develop opportunities for connection and community.
Mentors and mentees will work together through each of the following key components, which are meant to guide the relationship:
- Safe space: Mentors and mentees will create a safe space to foster the mentor and mentee relationship, creating authentic connections and building community through trust, non-judgement, respect, confidentiality, and unconditional acceptance.
- Empowerment: Mentors and mentees will have the agency to set clear goals for their interactions, which will be used to encourage one another and provide an exchange of information and tools to support in achieving results.
- Exposure: Mentors and mentees will partner with one another to develop more ways for mentees to get exposure to opportunities aligned with personal and professional interests, while amplifying and growing the Wave-Maker network.
- Continuous learning: Mentors and mentees will be open and committed to engaging in conversations with one another that allows them to learn and grow from different experiences and perspectives to be able to make informed decisions.
