Are you a student or doctoral candidate and would like to gain valuable insights on LGBTQ+-related topics in connection with your professional or personal career from experienced professionals and managers? Or are you an experienced professional or manager and want to share your knowledge and learn from younger talent?
The Get Connected Mentoring Program offers you all of this. The mentoring program, which is unique in Switzerland, promotes the exchange between students or doctoral candidates and experienced mentors.
The effort is minimal, the benefits immense. Whether outed or not, Get Connected offers unique experiences. The bilateral exchange promotes the development and cross-generational discourse of the tandem members, which can address both professional and personal interests and, in particular, LGBTQ+-related topics.
You decide the pace yourself. Whether weekly, monthly or annual meetings, each tandem decides individually at what interval an exchange takes place. However, Get Connected recommends a certain regularity of meetings and sees the mentee as primarily responsible for initiating meetings. By organizing mentoring events, Get Connected is also committed to promoting exchange across tandems.
Matching takes place on certain key dates. You can find an overview of the next deadlines in the following illustration. The next deadline is 30.11.2023.
