Corporate mentoring as a path to more diversity and inclusion

Our corporate mentoring formats help employees from all diversity groups to develop and network professionally.

Digital mentoring is the ideal way to promote a diverse and inclusive company culture. Here, mentoring can both contribute to increasing the diversity of your company by targeting specific diversity groups or contribute to the topic of holistic inclusion by engaging your entire workforce and raising awareness of DE&I issues. Either way we help you to promote diversity and inclusivity in an impactful and measurable way. Possible fields of applications are for example:

Onboarding Support
Professional Development
Leadership Development
Transition Support
Employee Wellbeing

how it works

We provide you with the tools you need to build awareness for DE&I topics.
From training to matching and to the first mentoring session - this is how you get started with us.

Short videos familiarize users with our platform.

Our matching algorithm connects Mentors and Mentees.

The virtual classroom combines video chat and e-learning materials.

In the Manager Account you always keep track of user activities.

Matching

Our matching algorithm connects mentors and mentees based on their professional and personal profile information. Corporate clients can also add customized criteria and align them with their business goals. If the participants are ever not satisfied with their match, our 24/7 help desk will assist with a new matching.

Training

After users have registered on the Volunteer Vision platform, they will receive all information they need for their mentorship. In our Training Center, they learn more about mentoring methods, how to use our software, as well as our e-learning content in short videos and are sensitized to diversity and inclusion in practice. Afterwards, both mentors and mentees are ready for their first session – no previous experience necessary.

Virtual Classroom

The core of our software is our digital classroom, where mentor and mentee are connected via video chat. Integrated mentor scripts, videos, audio files, test questions, and case studies are available in each session to support their learning journey. Whiteboard, translation tools, upload capabilities and other features enable interactive and needs-oriented collaboration.

Reporting

Via the manager account, our clients always have an overview of the users’ progress. Besides basic information about the registered profiles, mentoring hours, and completed modules, they can also view user satisfaction as well as mentorship testimonials at a glance.

Volunteering
“Because of the online mentoring program, in the UK we saw an 8% increase in retention amongst the mentee group. They were expanding their roles and looking for their next career move within the company instead of leaving our organization, which is exactly what we wanted. In addition, 82% of participants reported positive effects of the program on gender balance.”
