What is involved for mentors?
A quick call with a FAR AI team member to understand your skills, goals and professional background. When we have a mentee relevant to your strengths, we ask if you are interested and available. If so, we will connect you and the mentee, where you can both test your fit. If you and the mentee are both keen, you will decide the best format for your context and take it from there! This could be a one-off deep-dive, or a recurring meeting slot for 2-3 months. We can support with finding a time and format for you if you need.
