• IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program 2020


    Dear fellow INSEAD alumni,
    It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of the third edition of the IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program.


    Registration for IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program 2020
    Deadline: May 5th, 2020
    You are invited to participate in the third edition of the IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program. Last year, for the second consecutive year sixty INSEAD alumni enrolled in the IWIB Mentoring program. 100% of the participants said the Mentoring Program should continue and 86% would recommend it to fellow alumni, and it was.
    For this edition, based on the feedback we received regarding commitment and follow-up needed, we will

    * limit the Program to 10 mentees for Basel/Zurich and another 10 mentees for Geneva/Lausanne
    * re-iniate the Training / Mentoring Explorer event to give potential Mentors and Mentees the opportunity to exchange and network
    * arrange for a mid-term follow-up email or phone call to Mentors and Mentees


    What is mentoring?

    Mentoring is a voluntary non-profit relationship aimed at the development of the individual, both professionally and personally, in which two persons are involved (Mentors & Mentees). Mentor provides informal guidance to Mentee to help her/him carry out significant transitions in the level of knowledge, work and way of thinking; the objective is to enable the Mentee to fully apprehend her/his current role, his/her potential and foster personal and professional development”

    It is different from Coaching in that
    ▪ Coaching is aimed at enhancing skills to improve task proficiency
    ▪ Coaching content is well-structured, while Mentoring is more informal
    ▪ Coaching goal are related to performance, while Mentoring goals are focused on development


    What is the IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program?

    The third edition of the IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program runs from November 2019 to March 2021 with an assessment completed by the end of October 2020. INSEAD alumni who would like to participate as mentee, mentor or both are proposed to three potential matches by February 17, 2020. Applicants have until March 15, 2020 to meet and provide us with their feedback so that we can pair one mentee with one mentor. The final pairing will be announced by April 10, 2020 to enable mentors and mentees to start the actual mentoring sessions.
    A toolkit will be provided to facilitate the sessions and support the program.
    In order to cover the costs, we ask mentees to pay CHF100 to participate in the IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program.  (XING link below). This fee is refundable in case we do not find an appropriate mentor.

    Who can participate to the IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program?

    The IWIB Swiss Mentoring Program is open to all genders and all generations. Mentees are not restricted to new graduates. They could also be alumni going through a significant career transition. We strongly encourage INSEAD women graduates to become mentees and mentors in the program.  As a mentee, defining your goal and clarifying your expectations is essential. Bear in mind that mentoring is not a channel for job search. Do not expect that mentoring will provide you with your next job.
