CheMento, the mentoring program of the GDCh, started as a pilot project in January 2014 and has been carried out every two years since then with 30 tandems.
CheMento is designed as one-to-one mentoring. This means that a mentor looks after a mentee.
CheMento pursues the goal
The mentoring cooperation is designed to last 12 months and is accompanied by a supporting program. In this context, mentee and mentor are prepared for their respective roles and supported in the mentoring process. In addition, there will be opportunities for networking and intensive exchange with the other participants.
The supporting program encloses
A partnership based on mutual respect and a positive attitude is fundamental to a successful mentoring relationship – despite differences in age and experience.
Further requirements are:
The tandems are selected and put together by an advisory board appointed by the GDCh and made up of representatives from various GDCh structures. The composition of the tandems (matching) is based on the registration profiles.
Important criteria for this are
The personal interests and experiences of the participants also play an important role. Because when "the chemistry is right", the benefit of the mentoring relationship is particularly great.
After the matching phase has been completed, all tandem partners will receive their respective contact details. The mentees make initial contact with their mentors. The official merger will take place during the kick-off event. After getting to know each other, the mentee and mentor decide whether they would like to enter into a cooperation and inform the GDCh accordingly.
