When we set up our first Kerning the Gap mentoring programme, we had no idea how popular it was going to be, so much so, that 6 months later we launched the second one, to keep up with demand. We’ve now launched a third programme and are looking to launch in new regions next year.
We caught up with the first programme mentors and mentees back in June and the results were exciting, with two mentees already promoted and one with a brand new job.
And it isn’t just the mentees that are feeling the impact, all of our mentors remarked how incredibly rewarding it has been, and how much they’ve learned about themselves along the way.
Kerning the Gap mentoring now has had over 150 people in the programme. Our most recent intake of the KTG Mentoring Scheme was in September 2018, aiming to help and empower women to rise in the design industry.
And as ever, a huge thank you to Emily Cosgrove from The Conversation Space and Jo Gray from 2 Youth Business, the inspiring women that making this programme possible.
