Mentoring Scheme Introduction
Women in Exhibitions have developed this mentoring scheme to inspire and empower women in the industry. The programme is designed to support the growth and career development of our members through a 12-month programme working with some of the top industry players who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge.
Who’s It For ?
This scheme is exclusively for paid members of the Women in Exhibitions Network and is open to women working within the exhibitions industry who are hungry and committed towards developing their network, their talent and themselves.
Meet Our Mentors
We are overwhelmed to have been able to attract the best names in our industry to share their insight, skills and expertise to help you in your career. Our Mentors have a wealth of knowledge and experience within the exhibitions industry and range from Event Directors to CEOs. So whatever your career challenge and whatever level you are at, we are confident that we can provide exceptional talent to help you on your journey.
We give mentees the option to select which mentors they would prefer, but due to availability, we cannot guarantee that you will get your first choices. However, because of the great line up of mentors, we are confident that you will not be disappointed.
