We are all conscious that the representation of women at senior levels within the design industry is woefully behind other business sectors. As part of its mission to change this, KTG are excited to launch a new mentoring programme. Mentoring is a well recognised, powerful tool that enables people to make connections and allow deep, two way learning. Getting involved in a formal programme allows structured learning with someone outside of your organisation. The programme is practical and the relationship is driven by the mentee. The schedule is decided on by the pair to suit the needs and commitments of both parties.
We are working with The Conversation Space who support the successful DBA Twenty Twenty programme. They bring many years of expertise and a true commitment to the issue of ensuring women are supported to reach their potential..
Want to find a Mentor?
If you have reached a stage in your career where you think you’d benefit from a mentor and want more info, please have a look at our guide for mentees:
If your organisation is happy to support you with this we ask for £75 per mentee. This is simply to cover the cost of the administration and time (plus a few drinks on the night) all our profits go back into KTG.
We encourage all mentees to discuss this with, and gain the backing, of their organisations however we understand that not all companies see the benefit of mentoring. If you find that you aren’t being supported, please get in touch and we can discuss other options and discounts.
Ready to be a Mentor?
Mentoring has proven benefits for both mentees and mentors. You can have a look at our mentor guide below but, please feel free to contact us if you’d like to discuss this further.
The September Mentorship programme kicks off with a ‘Speed-Matching’ event on September 19th. This will be followed by a training session on October 2nd. For more information and to sign up to the scheme, click on the below:
Already have a mentor and want to get the most out of your relationship?
This year we have extended the programme so that anyone who already has a mentor or a mentee can sign up to the 12 month programme without having to be matched. Join us on October 2nd for the first training session by registering below.
