Code of Conduct for Mentors

Ensuring a Positive and Respectful Environment for Professional Growth

The mentorship platform is focused on professional growth and the inner work necessary to support this. It is important to refrain from expressing potentially offensive political, religious, or ideological views, and disrespectful or discriminatory behavior will result in exclusion from the platform. It is also important to give at least 24 hours notice when canceling or rescheduling appointments, and to use the platform's scheduling tool, Calendly, for mentoring sessions. Mentors should commit to offering at least one session per month and should keep their information and calendars up-to-date. Mentoring sessions are one-off events and there is no obligation to continue on a regular, long-term basis. Mentors should stick to facts, label personal opinions as such, and respect the privacy of their mentees. All data, metrics, and insights shared within the community should not be shared outside of it, and the platform should not be used for advertising or customer acquisition. By following these guidelines, the mentorship platform can be a supportive and productive environment for personal and professional growth.
