Your frequently asked questions

Why is mentoring for diversity and inclusion so powerful?

Mentoring and peer learning are powerful tools for human connection and growth. They have many uses for diversity and inclusion, making them essential tools to embed in your D&I strategy.

This includes:

  • Foster a more diverse leadership team by developing young leaders from underrepresented backgrounds through mentoring.
  • Foster inclusivity by connecting people with shared characteristics for learning and growth through ERGs.

How do I start a DE&I mentoring program?

Starting a mentoring program involves some careful planning. Luckily, we’ve put together this step by step guide to designing your mentoring program to help you.

When tailoring it for DE&I initiatives, it’s important to make sure you understand the needs of the group or groups you are trying to target so that you can design your program effectively. It’s also important to get senior buy-in, especially for DE&I. This can make a huge difference in the success of your program as it signals top level support and understanding of your goals.

You’ll also need to consider factors such as the size and ambition of your program, as well as the best time frame. For example, reverse mentoring works best in shorter, structured programs. With proper preparation you can prevent problems later down the line, so make sure you invest time in the planning stages!

What does mentoring software do?

Here at Guider, our mentoring software works using a sophisticated matching algorithm with a 96.5% matching accuracy. Users input their information and are matched with several potential mentors, giving them the power to choose. They are then able to communicate, book meetings and find additional resources through the platform, which also provides real-time metrics to help hit your success criteria.

To find out more about how Guider’s platform works, take a look at our guide.

Can I start a reverse mentoring program with Guider?

Starting a reverse mentoring program with Guider is simple. In fact, we can create a range of programs for you, all managed in one easy to use platform.

We have plenty of resources to support your reverse mentoring program too and our expert team will guide you through the process.

Can mentoring support my Employee Resource Groups?


You can implement a mentoring program through your ERGs to target support to a specific group or groups. By connecting people within the group you can create connections for support. Or by connecting people across the business, you can open up doors to learning and progression companywide.
