I now feel more confident and have gained clarity in certain situations. My advice to others would be, be respectful of the other person's time, as a mentee investing more and being open. Showing some vulnerability as well as searching for common ground.

Smart matched 228 in one go

From weeks of matching, to seconds

Mentorloop’s mentoring experts tailored the matching algorithm to take into account a participants' sector, company, gender, and skill gaps, saving Dorottya’s time and effort.

86% Participant Satisfaction

Positive feedback from mentors/mentees

Following a successful pilot where feedback was gathered from mentoring participants, LEAD Network is expanding their mentoring offering more broadly to other members.

Dorottya Gill-Zalay runs a mentoring program at LEAD Network, a non-profit organisation with a focus on advancing gender equality across the European FMCG industry. 

The Mentorship Program is a 10-month developmental experience available to members of LEAD Network’s Partner organisations. 

The program is coordinated by a team of passionate volunteers of the LEAD Network, who themselves have busy jobs working for big names in the FMCG industry across Europe. As interest in the Mentorship Program grew, they did not feel that they had the control, visibility or scalability to offer mentoring to more of their members.


We're confident we can smart-match *any* sized cohort with the Mentorloop algorithm 👏

The LEAD Network volunteers were previously spending weeks matching mentees and mentors, priding themselves on a high-quality matching process to meet each participant’s individual needs.

“We know that finding our members the right mentor is absolutely central to the success of the program so we used to take weeks manually pairing people up.

When we started working with Mentorloop, it was actually really hard at first to give up control of the matching process but totally worth it since participants were just as happy with the quality of the matching !”

Mentorloop’s mentoring experts tailored the matching algorithm to take into account participants’ sector, company, gender, and skill gaps, saving Dorottya’s time and effort.

This might be the best piece of software I've ever used. We were able to grow our mentoring programme here at LEAD Network, thanks to the efficiency and functionality we gained by having Mentorloop.

Now we’re in a position to significantly scale the reach and impact our mentoring programme to our members!

What Role Does Equity and Equality Play in Your Mentoring Program?

The right mentoring program should level the playing field to empower entire cohorts of people: workplaces, member associations, social groups and educational institutions. Equality should be a cherished value so that every individual can thrive—whoever they are, whatever their background, however they worship or whomever they love. But we can’t arrive at equality without it’s often forgotten partner, equity.

What does a Mentoring Program Coordinator do?

Being a Mentoring Program Coordinator is an incredibly rewarding experience that positively impacts the lives of many. And while mentoring programs don’t fully run themselves (even though Mentorloop can do a great deal of the heavy lifting!), they do require a point of contact that can steer the program in the right direction for the organisation that is running one.
