On June 24th, DiversityQ will present ‘Rethinking Inclusive Mentorship‘, a deep-dive event that will educate delegates on how to implement an inclusive mentorship programme within their organisation.
Rethinking Inclusive Mentorship – what to expect
A panel of speakers will engage in a two-hour ‘deep dive’ session, including a panel discussion and workshop where they will explore leading research that proves the business benefits of mentorship.
Discussion topics will include why mentorship programmes can be one of the most authentically successful DEI initiatives, how effective programmes can improve minority representation in leadership, testing if your business is ready for an inclusion-focused mentorship programme, ensuring inclusion initiatives remain equitable, and many more.
The event aims to help organisations implement actions that go beyond words when building an inclusive culture. With the business world facing growing social pressure to make their workplaces better reflect the diversity of society, it can be the easy way out to engage in tick-box exercises. However, this event will help firms examine mentorship as an effective building block towards real and effective inclusion.
A range of insightful speakers will attend the event, including Rosie Ifould, Head of Customer Engagement, working at Frank Recruitment Group. In her role, she works with the Group’s customers and partners on D&I initiatives that grow the tech talent pool and support new opportunities for underrepresented groups.
There’s also Joel Blake, entrepreneur and Founder & CEO working at The GFA Exchange, a FinTech portfolio risk management solution for the financial services sector. His specialism is inclusive business growth. In 2016, he was awarded an OBE for Services to Business Support and Enterprise.
