Moxxie Mentors do not give advice, but rather help the mentee to evaluate and consider different situations through a process of reflection, thought-provoking questions and critical feedback which allow the mentee to come to a well-informed and thought-out decision herself. All participating mentors must, at all times, conduct themselves with dignity and act in a way which respects diversity and promotes equal opportunities. The mentor’s role is to respond to the mentee’s needs and agenda; it is not to impose their own agenda. All Jr Moxxie and Ms Moxxie mentors are required to attend our 2-hour Mentor Training Class. Mentors on Call mentors must view our Mentor-on-Call Training Video as well as adhere to the following guidelines.
Confidentiality: The confidentiality of the mentee remains paramount at all times. I shall not disclose any information about the mentee to other parties without the explicit mentee permission.
Act on Behalf of Mentee: I shall always strive to act in the best interests of the mentee. Under no circumstances shall I further other interests by intentionally advising the mentee to follow a course of action that is clearly detrimental to the best interests of the mentee.
Communications: In communications with the mentee, I shall not use offensive language or transmit offensive images.
Discussion Topics: If the mentee expresses an unwillingness, reluctance or discomfort in discussing any topic that I have raised, I shall promptly cease pursuing that topic.
Business Relationship: I shall not pursue a business relationship with the mentee during my participation in the program.
Prohibited Advice: I shall never counsel the mentee beyond the bounds of my capability, experience & expertise. When appropriate, I may refer the mentee to another point of contact or professional who can act in her best interests.
Fees: I am acting in a voluntary capacity and shall not charge the mentee or foundation any fees for our meetings or request any form of compensation.
