Mentoring in Practice

Date & Time:

17th June 2019
09:45 - 11:00


Hall 2a

The purpose of this session is to examine three different models of mentoring scheme and consider the value, impact and practicalities of each one.

Abbie McKenna supports the women-only Aurora leadership initiative across the island of Ireland, and will discuss the role, impact and benefits of mentorship, a key element of participants’ development.   The Aurora programme was developed in 2013 to address the issue of reducing numbers of women in senior posts in higher education across the UK and Ireland and has welcomed over 6,000 attendees since its inception.

Emerald Publishing provides mentoring as a development opportunity to their staff and Tony Roche will give some insights on their well-established workplace programme.

Ann Charlett-Day is leading the current ARMA mentoring pilot and will provide an update on progress, and share any lessons learned and outline the hopes for the future of the scheme.

Participants will gain insights into three different models of mentoring from colleagues with direct experience of the programmes.

Presented by:

Ann Charlett-Day - Income Capture Officer for the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, University of Sheffield
