What is the time commitment?
We anticipate each mentorship consisting of 10 meetings (in person or by teleconference or videoconference), including meeting with Board and key staff members (if required).
There will be a one-day gathering of all mentors and mentees mid-way through the mentorship. This workshop is a key part of the program and attendance is mandatory.
On completion of the mentorship, an acquittal reporting on the agreed aims and outcomes is required.
Application organisations will be selected that best demonstrate:
- the calibre and potential to develop and succeed in the mentorship.
- the capacity to develop and grow their leadership within the organisation.
- commitment from the Chair and board to support the mentorship.
