9:40 am – 9:45 am: Mentor Match Program Evaluation

·       Email from mentor Moses Altsech: “I was wondering if you've already created any mentoring program effectiveness metrics? A quick survey would allow you to take the pulse of mentors'/mentees' experience and, later on, see how it compared to their initial expectations and solicit feedback on how to tweak the program. If you needed help putting something together, please let me know; I'd be happy to help. My vision for an assessment was something more intricate than what's already in place--more than a periodic touchpoint, it would be long, intricate, and collect data on motivation to sign up, initial and evolving expectations, the experience, benefits to mentors and mentees, program improvement ideas, etc. So, it's not duplication; rather a complement.”

9:45 am – 10:00 am: Debrief on discussion from last meeting re: evaluating mentor match program and discussing the future of matching criteria

·       Discuss ways in which we could incorporate affinity into program in a meaningful way

o   Add more resources to our webpage: Inclusion Resources

o   Create a clear statement of our program goals, including what we are and what we’re not to incorporate into our webpage and program promotion

o   Update the survey list of expertise to include: Experience as a person of color in the workplace; experience as a woman in the workplace; others?

o   Incorporate awareness of differences and create opportunities to share experiences at upcoming events

o   Update program to reflect current campus issues, such as TTC, hybrid work

·       Determine changes (if any) we’d like to implement or explore further

·       Check-in with ASEC and SOAS on any major program changes
