Congratulations on your award. The Lampe Foundation offers you the opportunity to be matched with a mentor, a person who can help you and guide you in the attainment of your career goals. The purpose of this guide is to provide you with some information that will enable you to have as successful and productive a relationship as possible with your mentor. We define mentoring as a partnership. Each partner has a role, and both need jointly to invest in the relationship in order to gain the most from it.
This guide details the benefits of having a mentor and ways to launch and maintain a successful mentoring relationship. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the information in this guide, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact a member of the mentoring committee. If you feel that the present time is not convenient for such a relationship but would like one in the future contact us when the time is right and we will attempt to match you with a mentor.
