Young@Workplace Pride is a special program of Workplace Pride intended to target and support young professionals as they enter the workplace. Our team of enthusiastic young members would like to make LGBTIQ+ mentors more accessible to young professionals through our mentorship program.
We would like to stress that the mentorship initiative caters to individuals of all age groups, aiming to foster a blend of experienced experts and young professionals. This setup creates ample opportunities for mutual learning and growth. Additionally, the mentorship program includes training and social events.
We are looking for fellow LGBTIQ+ people that are willing to invest at least 2 hours per month of their time to make a change in each other’s lives. A mentee is someone who has identified a specific personal or professional goal, who wants to become better in some aspect of their lives, and who believes that the guidance and help of a mentor can help them achieve this.
A mentor would ideally be somebody who has both professional and life experience and who voluntarily agrees to support, advise and guide their mentee on their journey of being an LGBTIQ+ professional. Being a mentor or a mentee is a title that doesn’t necessarily depend on status, age, or professional seniority. Everybody’s experience is unique within the community.
Sparring partners are peers who engage in a mutually beneficial exchange of insights and feedback.
Do you identify as LGBTIQ+? Would you like to commit to the program for 6 months, starting from November? Then do not hesitate to sign up via this form!* As Workplace Pride is an international organisation, applicants are welcome from across the globe.
*Please note that application only doesn’t guarantee you an entry to the mentorship program as we have limited spots.*
The program will kick off with a hybrid event on 15 november in the late afternoon (CEST time) where participants will:
1) Be introduced to the program
2) Have the opportunity to get to know each other
3) Be inspired and empowered to build a successful mentor/mentee relationship
Let’s make a change together!
Hopefully see you soon. The Young@Workplace Pride team
