Rise, the advocate group for gender diversity within the broadcast manufacturing and services sector, has today launched its first mentoring scheme. The programme, which is based in the UK, will work with 10 mentees from the following sectors of the broadcast industry – operations, engineering, sales, marketing and business.
Each mentee will be assigned a mentor and will have 10 hours of mentoring contact with their industry professional. The mentees will also have the opportunity to meet with their mentee group on a monthly basis, as well as attend networking events and workshops throughout the six-month period.
The mentoring programme is free and is open to those women already working within the creative and digital industry, but is also open to those working within other sectors too.
The scheme has been supported by leading industry companies:
Gold sponsor – Clear-Com
Silver sponsors – Avid, Pixelogic, Sony DADC and Bubble Communications
Membership to Rise is free.
