17 May Successful Speed Mentoring!
POWERful Women has been pooling resources with other women’s groups in energy via the Energy Sector Women’s Networking Group which meets at BEIS. Together we devised a great opportunity for women in middle management to engage in speed-mentoring and networking in September last year with support from Alex Chisholm.
On 11 May 2017 two members from the group POWERful Women and MentorSET hosted a further speed-mentoring event at the All-Energy conference, SECC, Glasgow. The event aimed to raise the profile of the benefits of mentoring as an enabler in the growth of skills in the energy sector, with a particular focus on the development of females in the industry.
We were delighted to have a special guest speaker, the Women’s Engineering Society’s Karen Burt Award winner, Clare Lavelle. Clare is Arup’s Energy Consulting Business Leader in Scotland and the North East, and an enthusiastic advocate for the engineering profession to young women.
