Mentoring Circle kicked off its third year on International Women's Day at White City Place, celebrating the global day for the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
Vanessa Murray, Senior Asset Manager at Stanhope, said:
“Mentoring Circle proudly represents the core foundations of International Women’s Day, working to celebrate and empower women in the property industry. Being able to kick off our third year at White City Place is a personal highlight and we are looking forward to working with the latest cohort of mentees.”
Vanessa Murray founded Mentoring Circle as a cross-sector mentoring scheme designed to connect female professionals within the property industry, increase talent retention and further gender equality at senior leadership level. International Women's Day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
Vanessa works with Ceri Moyers, Director at Mentoring Circle, to run the initiative every 12 months, involving a dedicated 1-1 mentor/mentee pairing, in person networking events, guest speaker seminars and a two day bespoke emerging leadership programme for all mentees accepted onto the scheme.
With over 100 mentees every year having access to over 125 of the most senior female professionals working in property and construction across the UK, Mentoring Circle provides a platform to nurture and promote young talent.
