The Chartered Institute of Public Relations has launched Progress, a free mentoring scheme for its members providing a space for discussion, opportunities and planning out future career paths.
Progress launches with 48 mentors who will offer their perspectives on current challenges. Mentees can connect with CIPR Fellows with specialisms in career progression and comms as well as those with experience in specific industry sectors including corporate and finance, health and medical, and local public services.
‘I’ve always given the advice that everyone needs a mentor, no matter what level you’re at, and I am so pleased that we’ve been able to offer one for free,’ said chair of the CIPR Fellows’ Forum and project lead Laura Sutherland. ‘I’d encourage all CIPR members to consider their needs and if they feel a mentor would be of benefit, visit the website and find your match.’
