Mentoring

The under-representation of women in senior positions means that there are often few visible role models for women at the start of their career. For many women, mentoring provides the ideal space to learn from someone who understands the particular challenges to women in the workplace. such as balancing their career and family life, or developing a career plan.

Mentoring is a personal development tool which is an effective way of helping people to progress in their careers. It is a partnership between two people (mentor and mentee) normally working in a similar field or sharing similar experiences.

A mentor is a guide who can help the mentee to find the right direction and who can help them to develop solutions to career issues. A structured formal programme would usually provide training and guidance for both potential mentors and mentees to ensure expectations are realistic and achievable. However, it can also be a more informal arrangement between senior colleagues and junior. It is a valuable way to help people develop and progress within a company.
