We are excited to announce the publication of our peer-reviewed article ‘Ten simple rules for establishing a mentorship programme’.
In the paper, we present a concise summary of recommendations that outline key elements to consider when designing and establishing mentorship programmes. These recommendations are drawn from the collective experiences of four different emerging and established mentorship programmes as well as the outcomes of an online mentorship workshop (Indaba) held in April 2021.
The mentorship programmes that contributed to this article include ESCALATOR Digital Champions Initiative, Deep Learning Indaba (DLI) Mentorship Programme, Open Education For A Better World (OE4BW), and Open Life Science (OLS). Talarify is working with SADiLaR to develop mentorship programmes as part of the ESCALATOR Digital Champions programme. We are involved in similar work on other projects. We look forward to continue learning from others and contributing to a community of practice around mentorship.
