We send out monthly mentorship update via email to all
current mentees and mentors which aid
communications and provide potential academic and career based conversation topics.

Our aim as a mentorship scheme is to ensure that every mentee who signs up before the application cycle closes is allocated to a mentor. This means that not every mentor who registered as part of the scheme will be allocated a mentee if there are no suitable matches available. If you are a mentee who has signed up however is unsure about your match status then please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
The Black Excellence Network is also about making connections and building rapport with fellow black students nationwide. If you have already discussed academia, career and lifestyle with your mentoring partner, continually check in to stay updated on their journey and current endeavours!
The mentoring platform at blackexcellencenetwork.net is designed to ensure that all communications take place in a supervised environment. These provisions are not restrictive but aim to ensure the safeguarding of all mentees. If you have been communicating with your mentee/mentor via an alternative platform then please contact us at email@example.com so we can make a note of this when monitoring frequency of communications.
