An exciting first for Mentoring Circle with an all-male panel, giving a different perspective on how to improve gender balance in real estate and in the industry as a whole.
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.
