Dive In to Reverse Mentoring

Dive In to Reverse Mentoring is NOW OPEN!

Join as a mentor or mentee today and learn from individuals worldwide, at all levels of seniority.

After the success of its inaugural run in 2023, Dive In to Reverse Mentoring returns for a second year! Last year, we matched 185 participants and facilitated nearly 100 hours of insightful meetings. We are excited to continue this impactful initiative in 2024.

Create professional interactions that break through communication barriers that form rank, seniority, and generational differences. #ReverseMentoring #Mentorship #ProfessionalDevelopment #DiversityAndInclusion2024.

Whilst senior leaders may feel that the time commitment is an obstacle, all those involved in reverse mentoring have described the experience as a positive enhancement to their own development and to the greater promotion of diversity and inclusion in their workplace. The exchange of perspectives is fundamental to greater cultural and generational understanding and competence, which then generates innovative ideas and solutions.

"This was an incredibly rewarding and challenging experience especially in terms of learning how younger colleagues perceive management, the behaviours they value and those they don't. The most interesting was that often they don't want or expect leaders to share their own values and behaviours - but they do expect leaders to live theirs."
