Social Mobility Employers Masterclass: Mentoring as a tool to support social mobility

Our October employers’ masterclass explored the importance of mentoring in supporting workplace progression and social mobility.

Mentoring partnerships can range from a localised, informal arrangement to a highly organised, official programme that spans across industries. Participants in mentoring programmes range from students from lower socio-economic backgrounds being matched with employees from a particular industry, to senior leaders being matched with junior members of staff in reverse mentoring programmes.

What different types of mentoring have in common is the mutually beneficial relationship that develops between a mentor and a mentee, where knowledge exchange helps both parties to realise their potential, expand their network and achieve their goals. Mentoring can bring as much value to your organisation as it can to an individual mentee.
