The 2017 Murray Edwards mentoring programme is now up and running.
How will it work?
The programme will see a younger alumna paired with a more senior alumna, either from the same sector or who can offer parallel experiences, advice and guidance. The intention is for the mentoring sessions to provide a confidential space in which to discuss and clarify the mentee's career and personal goals, and where the metor will be encoouraged and challenged to deal with any issues and explore their potential.
Applications for this year's programme are now closed to mentees, but we are still keen to hear from any potential mentors. Full training will be provided to all mentors, with kind thanks to Hilary Douglas (New Hall, 1968) and Sarah Gornall (New Hall, 1968) as in previous years, to enable you to make the most of your mentor / mentee relationship.
If you are interested in being a mentor, please let us know: email@example.com.
