To celebrate National Mentoring Day (27 October), our October employers’ masterclass will explore the importance of mentoring in supporting workplace progression and social mobility.
Mentoring partnerships can range from a localised, informal arrangement to a highly organised, official programme that spans across industries. Participants in mentoring programmes range from students from lower socio-economic backgrounds being matched with employees from a particular industry, to senior leaders being matched with junior members of staff in reverse mentoring programmes.
What different types of mentoring have in common is the mutually beneficial relationship that develops between a mentor and a mentee, where knowledge exchange helps both parties to realise their potential, expand their network and achieve their goals. Mentoring can bring as much value to your organisation as it can to an individual mentee.
At this event, you’ll have the opportunity to hear both a mentor and a mentee’s perspective on the benefits of mentoring schemes, as well as learn more about:
- What to consider when setting up a mentoring programme – the potential challenges as well as opportunities
- How mentoring can support access to an industry
- How mentoring is key for progression opportunities
- How to ensure mentoring supports senior leaders to become inclusive leaders
- What success looks like – how can you measure the impact of mentoring on an individual, an organisation and wider social mobility?
