The term mentoring is being mentioned a lot of late, partnered with the message that it is very important for women in their careers. But what actually is ‘mentoring’? How different is it to other concepts such as ‘sponsorship’ and ‘career coaching’? And what are the ways you can approach mentor–mentee relationships in your career?
We have invited Maud Lindley from Serendis Leadership Consulting to answer these questions for us. Maud delivers successful mentoring programs for women across a range of sectors which means she is well versed on the specific needs of women in their careers. But, we also know how important it is to learn from the experiences of other women in our field. So, we are excited to have a number of talented women in leadership positions across the health and medical research sector joining us as ‘table mentors’ for the morning. They will generously share with you their own experiences with mentoring and any lessons they have learnt along the way.
Whether you are on the look out for a mentor and not sure how to go about it, have a mentor but need guidance on building effective mentor–mentee relationships, or you are being asked to mentor others, we hope to see you for breakfast at The Tea Rooms QVB for what is bound to be an inspiring, practical and delicious start to your day!
