Guidance when you need it most

The voluntary mentor program at KLR was designed with your career development and advancement in mind. Our mentor program aims to give both mentors and mentees the resources needed to achieve their professional and personal goals.

Mentor program FAQs

Q: How do I become a Mentee?

Once you have learned the ropes as a new associate and have a year of experience at the firm we welcome and encourage your participation in the mentor program.

Q: Who would be my mentor?

Staff can select a mentor of their choice typically someone one to two levels higher than their current position. For example, associates can select a supervisor/ manager as a mentor.

Q: Can I be a Mentor?

At KLR we take the mentor role very seriously and require anyone interested in becoming a mentor to complete our mentor training program. Supervisors and above can partake in the training and will be evaluated on their commitment to maintaining the integrity of the program with their mentees.

Q: I would like to be a Mentor, what type of commitment does it involve?

As a mentor you should be willing and able to help mentees reach their highest potential. Your guidance and support will be based on your mentee's experiences, career goals and challenges so your commitment to the program will depend on your willingness to help your mentee succeed. An effective mentor is respectful, trusting, non-judgmental and confident. They have the ability to create a comfortable environment that allows for a meaningful, candid discussion.

Q: I would like to be a Mentee, What Type of Commitment Does it Involve?

Mentors and mentees should meet quarterly, or more often, as needed. To help you get the most out of your time with your mentor, one mentor lunch per quarter is on us and will be reimbursed by the firm.

As a mentee, it is important for you to take an active role in developing the relationship with your mentor and as you progress towards your career goals. To achieve this, it helps for mentees to develop a list of yearly goals. This list can then be reviewed with your mentor and serve as a guide for your career plan.

Mentees will also be encouraged to create a summary of each meeting outlining the general topics of discussion and progress towards achieving their goals. In addition to this, mentees can and should share all successes, and challenges they have faced and mentees are encouraged to point out any additional resources they may need to achieve their goals more effectively.
