It’s always been our vision at Mentorloop to make mentoring mainstream. We believe that the right connection can change a life and we want to make that opportunity available to anyone regardless of where they are at in their life or career.
Mentoring when left to operate organically, favours the bold. Those who went to the right school, know the right people or just know how to navigate the networking scene. And this is why mentoring has a bit of an image problem. The average person doesn’t necessarily view mentoring as relevant or useful to them.
My mentor is a great listener and takes the time to ensure we reach the best outcomes. I enjoy getting my mentors perspectives on different situations, and it helps give me the confidence that I’m on the right track.– Mentorloop Mentee
This is exactly why we’ve recently launched Mentorloop Marketplace.
Marketplace is a free open source program available to anyone who seeks the benefits of mentorship. Individuals can sign up as both a mentor and mentee, find a match, and then enjoy access to Mentorloops resources and frameworks to structure and set up their relationship for success.
For anyone who’s new to mentoring, whether that’s as a mentor or mentee, we’ve got you covered.
We want to provide a space and a community where ideas are exchanged, knowledge is shared and people feel supported.
We all benefit when a colleague or connection shows us the ropes, gives us a push, or sponsors us for a new opportunity. Mentorloop Marketplace is about making these opportunities available to everyone, especially women and other under-represented groups.
You can find out more and sign up to Marketplace here.
