Mentorship Programme

Our mentorship programme currently involves 15 pairs of mentors and mentees, with each mentee matched with a dedicated mentor. EMWWH facilitates interactions between the mentee and mentor at least once a month (this can be achieved using social media channels) during a six to nine month period, and then evaluates its impact on communication skills (number of presentations given within the departmental meetings, ground round, journal club, national and international meetings etc.), on time management, additional duties and data management, and finally on the representation of BME women on NHS committees. The issues addressed by this scheme include exploring the extent to which BME women are acknowledged, regarded and rewarded for their knowledge, experience and contributions at work. Opportunities are also offered in a number of areas such as interview practice, help with communication skills, and coaching.
