The aims of Rise mentoring

The Rise mentoring programme offers women across the broadcast tech sector access to crucial support to help transform their careers. It does this by:

  • helping mentees to take control of their careers by identifying career goals – and developing strategies to achieve them;
  • giving mentees access to a mentor who can give an impartial ear, feedback and advice;
  • improving communication skills;
  • expanding networks and making new connections.

The programme is running from May to November 2019. We have already recruited for our 2019 programme, however if you are interested in future mentoring opportunities, sign up as a member to be kept up-to-date with our latest news and announcements.
