HBLF launched its Y-Mentoring program in collaboration with Business Women's Network in 2017. The purpose of the mentoring program between companies is to support the orientation and development opportunities in the professional life of Y generation women.
During the one year time Y-Mentoring program mentors and mentees will meet several times, and during these meetings, they can freely choose their goals and the theme of their inspirational conversations.
The program now includes 18 mentors and 18 mentees.
FREQUENCY OF THE MEETINGS: We recommend at least eight appointments for mentors and mentees during the year. The date of the meetings are flexible; it depends on the couples' decision.
THE GOAL OF THE MENTORING: The mentor and the mentee set the goal of the mentoring program in a framework of „Mentoring agreement,” where they jointly commit to achieving their goals.
PARTICIPANTS OF THE MENTORING PROGRAM:
MENTORS: The top and middle managers of HBLF member organizations could apply for mentoring. Mentors were invited to participate voluntarily in the program by HBLF and the HBLF member companies’ HR delegates.
MENTEES: BWN members could apply to be a mentee. BWN is a community of women with a focus on business, where members organize programs to support their personal and professional success, expand their horizons, and help them to build up professional relationships.
The program started with a "RAPID DATE" within the HBLF Diversity Week where the mentors and the mentored persons had the opportunity to get to know each other personally, which helped to create the best couples that based on sympathy and professional interest as well. The event was moderated by Juhos Andrea, Managing Partner of Lee Hecht Harrison Hungary.
