“It is super to have a sounding board. Having a mentor outside of my immediate company is also particularly useful, providing additional perspective” - WIBF mentee, 2015

Our highly-regarded mentoring programme offers an opportunity to connect one-on-one with a fellow WIBF member. Mentees are matched to more senior mentors within WIBF and can seek career guidance, advice and support. The programme lasts about six months and offers benefits to both the mentees and mentors.


Supported by WIBF, mentoring partnerships typically meet regularly at a time that suits them and to work on individual goals and how to reach them. End of programme feedback shows the high value of the mentoring programme.

Volunteers are also needed to help us with the matching process, if you would be interested in volunteering or you’d like more information on our mentoring programme please contact operations@wibf.org.uk. This is a great opportunity to get more involved with WIBF and help support the wider network.
