Be honest with your manager. Tell him the situation and ask if you could reschedule the 1 on 1 because you already had something in place (That should help your job if this guy is a mentor)

This is what I'd do. If you've got a good manager, he'll praise you for taking the initiative to have a mentor and wanting to grow in your role.ย

If it's during work hours, work meetings should take priority. If your team meeting is unlikely to be urgent/important, you could always ask your manager if it's ok to take a call with your mentor this time as you already had it scheduled.
