Mentoring Programme

The UN-NYG Mentoring Programme is the first cross-departmental mentoring programme at the IAEA and implemented with support from the IAEA Office of the Deputy Director General, Ms Mary Alice Hayward, Head of the Department of Management.

The goals of the Mentoring Programme are to:

  • Strengthen staff resources through mutual learning experiences for mentors and mentees, to nurture high performance leaders with the capacity to “give back” at the workplace
  • Develop self-sustaining, moderately informal professional relationships between mentors and mentees that narrow the gap between different departments and age groups at the IAEA

Structure of the Programme

The UN-NYG Mentoring Programme is designed to run for seven months’ time and includes monthly events during the structured programme (September- December 2018) and an independent programme (January - March 2019) where pairs are encouraged to meet on their own initiative. To facilitate the further development of each mentor-mentee relationship, we will provide an example syllabus to be used as a guideline for the independent programme.
