Women's Launch Pad Mentor Form Academic Year 2014-2015
Thank you for your interest in Brown's Women’s Launch Pad mentoring program.
To confirm your interest in mentoring a senior class woman for next academic year (2014-2015), please complete this mentor information form.
The information you provide here will assist in the mentor/mentee pairing process.
Please note that mentor/mentee pairs are based on the student’s preferences as indicated on her application (i.e. career field, concentration, graduate school, ethnicity, and living/working abroad). Therefore the program’s specific mentoring needs will not be known until the mentee application review and selection process concludes in mid-September.
Mentors will be notified and asked to confirm their participation in mid-September by email, and mentee assignments will be emailed to mentors the first week of October.
The on-campus program kickoff is scheduled for Thursday, October 23, 2014.
Please review the following guidelines for alumnae interested in serving as mentors in the Women’s Launch Pad:
o Be willing to listen to the mentee’s questions and concerns and share thoughts, guidance and perspectives regarding life beyond Brown.
o A minimum of six contacts with your mentee (via email, skype, telephone or in person) from October to the end of April.
o Provide a brief biographic sketch to include in the annual WLP program guide that will be shared with all program participants.
o You must have graduated at least 7 ago; however, 5+ will be considered based on the alumna’s caliber of professional/personal life experiences.
o Attendance is strongly encouraged at one on-campus or off-campus event such as: the program kick-off on October 17th; the year-end event on May 1st; or regional events over winter break and summer months. Though attendance at one or more of these events is not mandatory for participation, it is advantageous to the mentoring relationship if you can.
o Be open to hearing from other mentees in the program as well.
Again, thank you for expressing interest in the Brown Women’s Launch Pad program and for completing this form!
