Research shows that quality mentorship is one of the most valuable and effective development opportunities available. The guidance, encouragement and support given by a trusted and experienced mentor can provide a mentee with a broad range of personal and professional benefits that ultimately lead to improved performance in the workplace.
Our first winner of the WIBF Mentor of the month is Jenny Bjorkman.
Jenny Bjorkman received some amazing feedback from her mentee Karyn McIntosh that highlights the value a good mentoring relationship can deliver from both a personal and professional opportunity perspective.
‘My mentorship with Jen has been brilliant. I was initially quite nervous, but I think it was a great match and probably one of the most beneficial things from a professional standpoint I’ve done in a number of years.’
Jenny is co-owner at Interaktiv Studio. She is highly engaged in the UX and tech communities as a mentor, facilitator, panel member and guest speaker and an advocate of tech for social good.
