“Mentoring for Success” – a great success!
Our ‘Mentoring for Success’ Meeting on Tuesday 11th October was itself a great success. About 35 women attended from diverse backgrounds in academia, industry and enterprise. The Workshop was led superbly by Jacqui Hogan, the current MentorSET manager. Jacqui discussed the mechanism of the mentoring partnership between mentor and mentee. This led to a practical mentoring exercise for everyone to play the role of mentor then mentee and work through their own specific career issues. It produced a very interactive evening and encouraged many to think about a mentoring partnership so it was particularly pleasing that the workshop resulted in the beginnings of several mentoring pairs. The evening highlighted clearly the role CamAWiSE can play in facilitating access to the MentorSET mentoring scheme and the benefits of the networking at Cambridge AWiSE meetings.
