Next Steps

Based on the nature or intention of the mentorship program, and Wedu's commitment to child protection and no tolerance for sexual harassment or misconduct, we may request an official background check of our mentors, especially in the event of providing support to mentees below the age of 18.

e.g. Wedu website, Facebook posts, Newsletters, etc.  Please note that we always try our best to honor the privacy preferences of our community members and will never sell nor share your personal details to other organizations.  In the spirit of connection and community, we may share your basic information with other community members for Wedu-related purposes only, as well as reach out to you should we want to tell you and your mentee's story in our online and offline collaterals!

Mentor Code of Honour

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Mentor with Wedu Global!  As a Mentor, you will have a rewarding and fulfilling journey. You will have the power to assist a Rising Star to develop as a leader.  The position of Mentor carries with it the responsibility of interacting appropriately with your Rising Star, according to the highest ethical standards at all times, as outlined in our Mentor Code of Honour.


Please read the following guidelines carefully and sign below.

As a Wedu Mentor I agree to the following:

  1. I will be fully committed to my Rising Star’s leadership development and will devote appropriate time to the mentorship and assignments.

  2. I will never intentionally do or suggest anything which may risk the physical or psychological security of myself nor another person within Wedu.

  3. As a Wedu Mentor, I understand that I will be able to support my Rising Star in the following:

    1. Help to identify personal and professional goals

    2. Find answers through a process of self-evaluation

    3. Provide knowledge/guidance on how to fulfill aspirations

    4. Guidance through thinking and decision making

  4. I understand that I will not be required to help my Rising Star in the following:

    1. Direct funding

    2. Therapy/counseling

    3. Editing homework or publications

    4. Resolving personal legal issues or trauma

  5. I will choose to be present. I will not be distracted by the phone, meetings, nor calls while with my Rising Star.

  6. I will honour the expected time commitment of the Leadership Development Programme: two mentorship sessions per month via phone or other voice application; suggested duration for each mentoring session is around one hour per session.  

    1. I understand that if I am unable to attend the scheduled mentorship session, it is my responsibility to notify my Rising Star at least 24 hours in advance.

  7. If I am unable to keep to this commitment for two months or more for any reason, I understand that I would be adversely impacting:

    1. My relationship with my Rising Star and Wedu.  I risk being suspended from the programme so that Wedu can match my Rising Star with another Mentor.

  8. I will honour the Rising Star opening up by opening up myself.

  9. I will share with Wedu my experience and concerns through calls, emails, and surveys.

  10. I will appreciate the diversity of this experience and approach my Rising Star’s unique background, culture, and challenges with an open mind.

  11. I will inform Wedu before making plans to meet any Wedu Rising Star in person.

    1. I will inform the Leadership Development Team of the date, time, and location of the meeting.

    2. I will ensure the meeting takes place in a public space without alcohol or drugs.

    3. I will decline any in-person meetings with my Rising Star or others in Wedu’s Mentorship Programme if I do not feel comfortable and I will notify the Leadership Development Team.

  12. I understand that professional responsibilities continue beyond the mentorship relationship.  I agree to maintain confidentiality of all information relating to Rising Stars.

  13. I will demonstrate professionalism with all individuals I interact with through the Mentorship Programme, including fellow Mentors, Rising Stars, and the Wedu staff.  I will respect the variety of different approaches to mentorship.

  14. I will acknowledge Wedu when speaking at public events or writing in public forums on topics related to my experience as a Wedu Mentor.

  15. I will inform Wedu when I am recognized by other organizations related to leadership development or mentorship.

  16. I understand that Wedu prioritises my well-being and I will contact the Leadership Development Team if any issues arise so that my Rising Star, Wedu, and I can resolve the problem together.  

  17. I understand that if I share any concerning information that negatively impacts my personal safety, my Rising Star has an obligation to disclose and share that information with Wedu’s Leadership Development Team to prioritise my well-being.

  18. If I become aware that my Rising Star’s safety or the safety of another is in jeopardy through disclosure from my Rising Star (e.g., child abuse, sexual abuse, etc.), I will report my concern to the Leadership Development Team immediately.

  19. I acknowledge that my participation in Wedu's Mentorship Programme is voluntary. If I identify that I need to take a break (Leave of Absence) or discontinue my participation, I will notify Wedu’s Leadership Development Team.

  20. If I have any questions or concerns that arise during my participation in the Mentorship Programme, I will reach out directly to Wedu’s Leadership Development Team by sending an email to mentorship@weduglobal.org.


Your commitment and dedication to your future potential Rising Star is a profound opportunity and experience. The quality of the relationship you build will directly influence her life and future. By signing this you are committing to make every effort to maintain professionalism, improve your mentoring skills, and exercise good judgment when engaged in any activity with your Rising Star.

Mentoring is not a universal cure for all the problems/decisions that your Rising Star is facing. The essence of mentoring is a sustained human relationship: a one-on-one relationship that shows the Rising Star that she is valued as a person and is important to society.


Privacy and Data Protection

Please read thoroughly and opt your consent below.

What information we collect

Rising Stars, Leadership Fellows, Mentors

In order for you to become a Rising Star, Leadership Fellow, or Mentor, we must collect your personal information starting at the application stage. Throughout your engagement with Wedu, we will continue to track and monitor your progress through programme-related  calls, surveys, email correspondence, and meetings, where we take down qualitative and quantitative data related to your personal and professional interests, goals, and achievements. These will include but are not limited to academic achievements, graduation information, current occupation and place of work.

 

Funding Recipients (Rising Stars only)

If you are successful in receiving a Future Income Sharing Agreement (FISA) or scholarship, you will be asked to share with us more information, including financial details and bank information for payment processing.

 

Donors, Partners

Donors and partners are individuals or organizations who support Wedu’s mission, either financially or through collaborative work. The information we collect will pertain only directly to the nature of your support or our collaboration, and as needed, may be used for the purposes set out in our policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect Wedu’s legal rights.

 

Website Subscriptions, Event Attendees, and more

Those who subscribe to the general newsletter through our website or event sign up sheets and/or follow us on social media channels are agreeing to share with us general contact information (i.e. email addresses, social media usernames or handles). We appreciate your keen interest in following our activities and spreading the good word, so we strive to ensure we send content in limited amounts and frequencies to respect your digital space. This also applies to unsuccessful applicants to both our programme or organisation, and includes any information collected throughout the application and selection process.

 

How your information is used

The information you give us permission to use is vital to help us in the following ways:

  • To find the most relevant and rewarding leadership opportunities and determine your eligibility for such opportunities;
  • To refine the mentorship experience, and further develop our leadership development programmes and services;
  • To help you monitor your individual leadership progress and goals;
  • To manage donations and partnerships in a way that is necessary for us to fulfill any contract or obligation, as well as provide relevant updates with regards to our relationship or collaboration;
  • To perform statistical analysis, market research and consulting projects from time to time, with which we may use anonymized data and share it with business partners and academic researchers.

 

We will contact you for your consent to share your photos, videos, and personal stories and reflections for use in social media campaigns, presentations to partners and donors, and marketing and awareness campaigns.

 

Wedu has not, does not, and will not ever share or sell your information to third parties.

How to view your information

Data transparency is critically important - both to us and the GDPR. We want to make this easy for you, so to view your personal information, simply ask and you shall receive! We’ll follow up as soon as possible with a detailed report on the personal information that’s stored with Wedu.

 

All requestors must verify they are the owner of or have legal rights to personal information before anything is distributed.

How to remove your information

You have full authority over your information, and you can ask us to remove any or all of it at any point in time.

 

As long as you’re involved with Wedu, we will retain your information as necessary to provide you with our services and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect Wedu’s legal rights.

 

Removing your information is easy - simply send us a request! Please keep in mind that the information you provide us with guarantees you access to our leadership development programmes and services. By requesting to have your information removed, you may be restricting yourself from Wedu’s programmes and thus may not be eligible for continued leadership opportunities, mentorship, or other facets of our programmes and services.

 

Wedu’s privacy & data protection policy is available on our website. Please feel free to read in detail. If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to learn more, please contact us at policy@weduglobal.org.




After submitting this application, a member of the Wedu team will be in touch with you via email within 2-3 weeks.  Should your application be accepted, you will be invited to schedule an interview with us.

Please note that
matching with a Rising Star happens every February, June and October.  Please make sure you're able to commit from the next available start date, both from an availability and scheduling standpoint (the majority of our Rising Stars are located in the Asia region).

Thank you!
