This session provides participants with the opportunity to consider the design and development of mentoring and coaching programmes, focusing on the diversity of needs, and how the degree of diversity influences programme design and development. Aspects of diversity include geographical, cultural, role orientation, and developmental domains. Providing an in-depth case study exemplar of developmental mentoring for humanitarian field workers, participants will appreciate the complexities and considerations given to all elements of the programme management cycle.
