Our Talent Mentoring Programme is a national initiative that involves over 100 WACL members gifting their time to support the next generation of female leaders.

Here you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the UK’s most experienced, insightful and inspiring women, sharing with utter candour and wisdom their own personal experiences and life lessons. The Mentors provide professional and emotional support as well as an independent perspective that is invaluable in helping mentees identify and champion their potential. It is a brilliant example of women lifting up other women, at many different points in their career. This programme is open to women across the country who are mid to senior level in their careers.

Tickets have sold fast for this round. If you’d like to reserve your place for the March – June 24 mentoring, please sign up below.
