Harness the power of mentoring to drive change.
Mentoring for Diversity & Inclusion
The need to prioritise diversity and inclusion in business is more important than ever. A diverse and inclusive organisation is one that employs and equally supports people of all genders, races, religions, sexual orientations, abilities, ages, backgrounds, appearances, and cultures.
Mentoring programs boosted minority representation at the management level from 9% to 24%
As well as promotion and retention rates for minorities and women from 15% to 38% compared to non-mentored employees.
How mentoring improves Diversity
Mentoring programs with a Diversity focus aim to empower minority employees by developing their skills, working towards goals, and building their internal network.
With mentoring increasing advancement rates, this diversifies the talent pipeline and increases fair representation in leadership positions.
How mentoring improves Inclusion
Inclusive companies are ones in which everyone feels heard.
By making mentoring an integral part of your company culture, you will foster human connection and knowledge sharing amongst all your employees, contributing to a diverse and thriving workplace.
