The Role of Mentors

The mentor provides the “light” for the mentee to follow which may consist of exploring the mentees career aspirations; strengths and weaknesses; collaborating on means to “get there”; implementing strategies; and evaluating along the way.

Ideally, a mentor should be able to:

  • Stay accessible, committed, and engaged during the length of the program
  • Listen well
  • Offer encouragement through genuine positive reinforcement
  • Be a positive role model
  • Share “lessons learned” from their own experiences
  • Be a resource and a sounding board 

Sharing wisdom and past experiences is what the mentee looks for from the mentor.
