I am pleased to be one of the professional mentors on this scheme run by my colleagues at Shine People & Places.
Here is their Press Release:
” MENTORING THE FEMALE LEADERS OF TOMORROW
The People 1st State of the Nation report has recognized that whilst female
workers make up over 70% of the sector’s workforce, they’re hugely underrepresented
when it comes to senior, with only six per cent of the board directors.
Women 1st is aiming to change this with a series of initiatives aimed at enabling
women to achieve their full potential as managers, board members and chief
executives. Employers will also benefit from a more skilled, more highly
performing and confident workforce.
People 1st has secured government subsidy for the second round of Women 1st –
Leadership Network which look to support and mentor the industry’s outstanding
female junior managers through a combination of CPD seminars and mentoring.
The programme, run by in conjunction with the mentoring specialist Shine P&P, is
worth £1,000 and the cost to the individual or the employer is just £100.

Women 1st and Shine have a strong network of senior executives working in the
