BIA will act as a facilitator of this programme, assisting the match-making process and providing some guidance for the duration of the programme. It is the expectation that participants will be responsible for their own scheduling, meetings and actions. In particular, it is the responsibility of the mentee to keep organised throughout the process in order to maximise the opportunity and time with their assigned mentor.

BIA may at times request feedback from participants however BIA will not be monitoring each stage of the programme.

In the case where you are unsatisfied with your match for personal or professional reasons, BIA expects participants to initially work with their match to try to resolve the issue. If this is not possible and you would like to terminate the relationship, please contact BIA for assistance. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to re-match you with another participant.
