Reach new levels
of personal growth
Mentorship is proven to support self-actualisation for mentors, when the interpersonal and professional relationship is successful.
Self-actualization is the complete realization of one’s potential, and the full development of one’s abilities and appreciation for life. It is recognised as the highest of human needs.
Get matched with women you can support through mentorship and experience self-actualisation, leadership development and a greater sense of wellbeing and connection.
Each OneUpOneDown mentor match last three months, with an expectation of four mentor-mentee meetings within this period. This makes the commitment managable for mentors with busy schedules.
We make matches on the bases of near-peer mentorsing, which means your mentee will be a couple of steps behind you in specific areas of learning and development.
You’re current experience will be highly relevant to your mentee and you’ll be able to relate to their current position.
Mentorship made easy
We’ll match you with someone you can relate to and will enjoy connecting with.
Each match lasts 3 months to maximise learning & keep focus.
To discuss shared challenges and experiences that don’t get addressed at work.
Access to quallity
in the role as a mentor.
So both mentor and mentee know the commitment and expectations.
Culture of care
We care about the development of women and everything we do resolved around this.
Access all the support you need
their role and to bring forth skills and characteristics that create space for growth.

We’ll propose a suitable match, taking into consideration your experience. Once you accept this match, you’ll be introduced to your mentee to begin the match. Each match lasts 3-months, with a minumum of 4 meetings.
Loved it? Get rematched
Once the 3-month period is up, you’ll have the option to be rematched with another suitable mentee and/or mentor. By participating in ongoing matching, you’ll build up a circle of trusted mentors and mentees.
Benefits of being a mentor
It’s an opportunity to practice and improve important leadership skills, including being an effective listener, questioner, and empowerer of action. Many of the mentors who have signed up are aware of this and welcome the opportunity to continue improving or maintaining this skill. For example, some of the women who have signed up have been managers but are no longer managing people and want to keep this practice up.
Helping others helps mentors get out of their heads and gain perspective by experiencing challenges through your mentees eyes. This is a refreshing and energizing exercise.
