EVALUATING INCLUSIVE MENTORSHIP – 5 QUICK TIPS

Working inclusively in your program and with your participants also means mentoring with an inclusive mindset, open to the diverse needs of your staff while building a workspace where ideas can be shared, challenges can be discussed, and staff at all levels can support each other.

  1. Review how trust is created with staff at all levels in order to build an environment where successful mentorship is possible.
  2. Assess how new plans get set into motion, and how staff at all levels are encouraged to take initiative with new ideas and methods.
  3. Evaluate the environment and staff relationships – how staff at all levels engaged, sharing concerns and asking advice from one another.
  4. Understand that staff shouldn’t feel judged, especially when reflecting on participant needs and evaluating situations that could have played out differently.
  5. Encourage feedback and implement relevant suggestions and ideas. Staff at all levels should know that their opinions are valued.
