Once a mentoring partnership has been established, a private workspace will automatically be set up on IEEE Collabratec.
Workspaces are available to help support mentoring partnerships. Workspaces allow participants to have discussions by creating, organizing, sharing, commenting, and collaborating on content. Based on the settings, Mentor/Mentee workspaces are not discoverable by IEEE Collabratec users other than the owner and invited participant(s).
To initiate a mentoring partnership, you must first activate your mentee preferences, as per the instructions above.
Once you have activated your preference, simply search for potential IEEE mentors on IEEE Collabratec:
Mentoring partnerships are particularly beneficial when strong connections are built between individuals who share professional interests. IEEE is proud to offer a program that is specifically tailored to suit our international community.
We encourage and empower members to help grow through this program. Mentoring is a powerful way to give back to the IEEE community as it makes a meaningful contribution to developing members. We invite potential mentors to update their profile on IEEE Collabratec and take this opportunity to inspire future contributors to IEEE and the global technology community.
Benefits for Mentees
Each participant in a mentoring partnership should be committed to devoting time and effort to develop their mentoring partnership. They need an understanding of their role and responsibilities, and each partner needs to stay in touch and follow an action plan that defines goals and outlines expectations for the partnership. See Mentor Guidelines.
