Women in tech need mentorship - receiving it and giving it. Mentorloop makes it both easy and affordable.
It became too hard to manage the program on a spreadsheet! And we needed to find a way to empower women to find each other.
It’s so hard to describe the impact our mentoring program has because it’s actually quite emotional.
At our events, women frequently come to tell us about the impact it’s had on them. They also get emotional because it means so much to women in tech to have someone relatable to guide them on their path and they’re usually isolated, often the only woman in their team.
Our mentoring program has become one of the main features of our community group. Through it, women have conquered imposter syndrome, negotiated salary increases, decided on career pathways, found new jobs and achieved promotions.

Project F values Mentorloop as not only a foundational part of the support we provide to women in technology but also a partner we love to recommend to our clients that are working to improve the representation of women in their technology and leadership teams.

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.
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.

In this post, we’ll look at how mentors can successfully build quality feedback into their mentoring. Quality feedback is priceless because it clarifies expectations, helps people learn from their mistakes, and builds confidence. It also allows mentees to more effectively take what their mentors say and turn it into action.
