FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO VIRTUAL WALKS WORK?
When you book, we ask you what you’d like to discuss with your mentor. We then pre-match you with the mentor we think will be able to help you the most. You'll find out who your mentor is on the day when you arrive in your breakout room. After a group introduction, we'll activate the breakout room, and you will talk with your mentor and up to 2 other mentees for an hour, discussing your questions, sharing your experiences and supporting each other.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Mentor Walks runs women focused events that intend an inclusive definition of women. We are welcoming and respectful of all women, including trans women and those who are non-binary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a woman in a way that is significant to them. We are for women only because it is important women feel comfortable to share their challenges for a myriad of reasons, including men can change the dynamics of the conversation. Mentor Walks for women only preserves an intimate space for our mentors and mentees to be open about their experiences.
WHO ARE THE MENTORS?
Our mentors are leaders in their fields. They include senior executives, thought leaders, entrepreneurs and business owners who value mentoring as an important step towards a successful career.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME ON THE DAY?
Our events are held outdoors, rain or shine. Be prepared to embrace Mother Nature, bring an umbrella, hat, water and wear your comfortable walking shoes. If you're part of one of our virtual events, please sit near a plant or the window so that your fellow participants can see a bit of greenery while they're talking with you.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear anything you like, but comfortable shoes are a must!
WHAT IF IT'S RAINING?
Walks take place rain or shine. Being in the glorious fresh air is key to Mentor Walks’ magic - although sometimes you may need to bring an umbrella! If the weather should ever become dangerous or unbearable, it's possible to find a local cafe to sit and have your conversation. Each group will need to agree to this scenario on the day.
CAN I CHOOSE MY MENTOR?
At each walk, we pre-match you with the mentor we think will be able to help you the most based on your topic/question. Our team let you know the name of your mentor when you arrive.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN NO LONGER MAKE MY WALK?
