SDT Mentor Program

Sigma Delta Tau is proud to offer a mentorship program to connect sisters with one another for professional guidance.

We have partnered with Ambition in Motion, an online mentoring platform, to develop this program. Using the Ambition In Motion matching process, sisters are matched with a mentor based on various compatibility factors including career interests, majors and much more.

 

COLLEGIANS

The online platform allows you to interact and share experiences through the program. This platform also hosts live, online workshops about mentorship etiquette, how to prepare for each mentorship conversation and how to ask the right questions. The platform provides videos and written content to help prepare you for the program. You will also have access to the Ambition In Motion employer network.

If selected for the program, you will be provided with your mentor’s contact information so you can connect based on your communication preference – whether that be via email, video chat, phone calls or in-person meetings.

Over the course of the semester, you can expect to:

  • Have a minimum of three, 30-minute conversations with your mentor
  • Attend four, 1-hour workshops to learn mentorship etiquette and preparation for mentor conversations
  • Complete three, 3-minute surveys to provide mentorship updates and a final post-program assessment
  • Meet with your Brand Ambassador three times to provide feedback
