How do we select our mentors?

It’s a 4 step process when vetting mentors.
Relevant Experience - We look for people with relevant experience, who have management experience and have worked in sizeable companies
Motivation for Mentoring - We look for mentors who are interested in giving back and learning, and evaluate their motivation through a survey and a call
Content - We ask our potential mentors to share past experiences with us through stories, to check if they can share insights successfully
Positive Feedback - We regularly check their ratings from mentees to see if they are appreciated
