WiPGMs Partners with Moving Ahead
Exciting opportunity to partake in mentoring programme with the 30% Club campaign – Mission Gender Equity
This year, we are delighted to offer the opportunity for our WiPGM members to take part in a WiPGMs-specific Mission Gender Equity mentoring programme with Moving Ahead, as part of the 30% Club campaign. Founded with the vision of Baroness Helena Morrisey and EY, Mission Gender Equity aims to build the pipelines and representation of women in leadership and board roles, and is a proven, practical, and powerful way to achieve greater gender balance at senior levels within organisations. The company has extracted learnings from their existing programme and developed a bespoke solution for Women in PGMs.
This 9-month programme will be open to those who are seeking career guidance and support, seeing female mentees be mentored by senior, high-performing stakeholders in the PGM industry. Through the initiative, participants commit to advancing gender diversity, championing each other’s stories, and learning by walking in the shoes of others. This exciting mentoring opportunity provides our partaking mentees (and mentors) with the tools to network, empower self-promotion, and unlock belief in their skills and potential. The programme has been running for 10 years, with impressive results, seeing almost 1 in 5 mentees promoted by the end of the 9-month programme.
The mentor programme is tentatively scheduled to launch in June, with an opportunity to learn more about what you can expect on your mentoring journey at a virtual showcase event in March (more details to follow). Should you be interested in joining the programme as a mentee or feel that you have the skills and insights to offer as a mentor, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces on the programme will be limited, and applications will close by the end of March. We are thrilled to provide this very worthwhile opportunity in support of this incredibly important cause, so we hope that you will all be excited and motivated to take part!
