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.”

·         Christy followed up on 2/11/2022 and shared last year’s program evaluation with Moses. His suggestions are available here:

·         2021-22 draft End-of-Program evaluation is available here:

Note: not all suggestions have been incorporated.
