How it works
Step 1: Members submit an application
This helps us understand your career stage, impact and professional ambitions, and goals for further development. We accept applicants based on motivation and commitment to the programme, availability, and clarity of goals to pursue.
Step 2. Net Impact Amsterdam matches mentors and mentees
Finding the right match is key. We aim to connect participants with a mentor that has meaningful experience in an area that will add value for the mentee’s career development and network.
Step 3: Mentorship pair agrees on scope
Mentors and mentees should agree to a minimum recommended scope of at least four one-hour sessions over a six month period. The mentorship pair should determine together if adjustments are needed
