Millennial Mentoring is designed to bring together digital natives at the start of their career with senior leaders who want to stay plugged into the latest technological developments, generational thinking and diversity & inclusion approaches.
In this reverse mentoring scheme, the millennials are the mentors, offering their extensive and native ability to be early adopters of new technologies and new ways of working in a diverse and changing workplace.
Benefits for the Mentor
Benefits for the Mentee
The Millennial Mentoring programme is a hugely positive experience and has proved to be highly effective for me at addressing real-world problems.
My mentor, Rebecca, is tremendously knowledgeable, focused and practical. Her advice has helped me to find a way through a number of complex issues in my work with senior decision makers.It’s vitally important to stay open to new ideas and new ways to respond to challenges and opportunities.
Especially as we move through our careers it’s too easy to rely on accepted ways of doing things. Rebecca’s insights drawn from a different skillset and worldview have helped me to tackle issues in new and effective ways.
