  • Attending and participating in the ‘bootcamp’ week at the beginning of the FDL research sprint.

  • Provide reality checks during discussions when required, but also inspire more ambitious thinking

  • Daily 3 hour meetings focused on progress check and feedback

  • Be available to the members of the group for individual mentoring as requested and/or required.

Mentors are expected to be active rather than passive.

There is also opportunity for ‘virtual mentoring’ with adjusted time commitment.

Accepting a role as a mentor is considered as a commitment of both time and energy. In acknowledgment of the effort, mentors will receive a stipend based on the commitment option chosen. All mentors are compensated in accordance with the level of support provided.
