Mentorloop Most Impactful Mentoring Program Awards 2023

These programs have been awarded on four key criteria:

  • The program gives everyone the opportunity to benefit from mentoring, not just a few “chosen ones”
  • The program endeavours to create a culture of mentoring in the organisation or community
  • The program strives to make/is making a significant positive impact on diversity, equity, and inclusion, whether explicitly stated as a program goal or as a natural result of mentoring happening in the organisation
  • The program coordinator/s has/have made a concerted effort towards achieving the target number of participants
  • The program is scalable whilst retaining mentoring quality and participant satisfaction
  • The program has undergone a significant expansion in the form of either the creation of additional programs or graduation from a pilot to always-on mentoring; or
  • The program coordinator/s run multiple programs for different cohorts

Some examples include:

  • The program has maintained an above average level of engagement within their cohort
  • The program has received positive feedback from the participants in their program

Some examples include:

  • There has been demand among members of the organisation or community to continue and/or expand the mentoring program more broadly
  • There has been a significant impact on diversity, equity, and inclusion within the organisation or community
  • The program has enabled better connections between people in their organisation or community despite geographical hurdles

Mentoring Programs that embody a collection of these attributes, more often than not, surpass the goals in which they set out to achieve.
