AES group mentoring program

The AES Group Mentoring Program is an innovative online mentoring program, in which seasoned evaluators guide small groups of emerging and mid-career evaluators through their professional journey.

Mentoring groups meet regularly (usually monthly) over the course of the program, and discuss wide-ranging ideas as well as problems encountered in their work. Mentees benefit from the expertise and leadership of the mentors, and from the mentee peer support amongst their group. Mentees with diverse experiences learn from each other and develop their support network in the evaluation field.

The group mentoring experience is different from traditional 1:1 mentoring. Mentees benefit from the program when they actively engage with their groups and share experiences. Mentors play a facilitatory and guiding role, and support mentees to explore ideas, find solutions to problems, and build their understanding of the practice of evaluation.

The 2023 program will be our third version of this program. We have learnt from the 2021 pilot and from our evaluation of the 2022 program, and have updated the program to reflect our growing understanding. The 2023 program will run from June 2023 to April / May 2024.
