Code of Ethics for Mentoring
- Positive role model
- Career counsellor
- Perspectives matter: Respect everyone’s point of view.
- It’s not about my agenda: Mentors must agree to work with the mentee’s agenda and not force their own agenda.
- Regular meetings: Mentors must make time to meet with their mentees and discuss the progress frequently. This needs to be one of their top priorities, and it cannot take a backseat.
- Maintain confidentiality. Mentee’s confidentiality remains a top priority at all times. Mentors will come across information about mentee’s organisations and other professional trading secrets. At no time should the mentor disclose any such information, without the explicit consent of the mentee.
- Supervision. Your discussions with the mentees will be frequently monitored to ensure the expected guidelines are being met.
- Prepare the mentees. They should make the mentees aware of the professionalism and the limitations of the program. They must dedicate to look for opportunities to share experiences to enhance mentees’ learning.
- Get mentee’s consent. Mentors must take mentee’s consent regarding their mental health condition. No mentor should accept a mentee with crucial depression or mental health conditions. Such individuals must be guided to support groups.
- Respect mentee’s time. Mentors must respect mentee’s time and must be available at the time they have decided.
- Know your boundary. Mentors must not intrude into spaces the mentee wants to keep private. They must also avoid getting into a relationship that is anything but professional.
- No dependency. Mentors should avoid creating dependencies but help the mentee to learn to go through their own situations.
- Know yourself. Mentors must become aware of their own capabilities and areas of work. They must not walk into areas they are not suitable for and must communicate this clearly so that both parties are on the same page about expectations.
- Don’t work for the mentees. Mentees have the capacity and potential to do their work, and mentors must only help them realize them.
- Voluntary participation. Participation, either as mentors or mentees, in this mentoring program, is purely voluntary and on the sole discretion of the members. However, one must adhere to the above standards without fail. There must not be any financial transactions between the mentors and the mentees.
- No sale of personal products. Your connection is only through CHRMP and mentors or mentees must not at any time engage in the sale of any personal products or services.
- No fake identities. Mentors must reveal themselves truthfully and must not use any counterfeit identities, that can, by any means, misguide the mentees.
- This can change. We, at CHRMP, reserve the right at our sole discretion to change, modify, add, or delete parts of this Code of Conduct at any time without further notice.
