Media tech advocacy group Rise has opened submissions for its annual mentoring scheme.
This year marks Rise’s sixth annual mentoring scheme in the United Kingdom, fourth in APAC, third in North America and the second year for its mentoring schemes in Europe and ANZ.
Rise mentoring is a free, six-month programme to support women working in, or aspiring to work in the broadcast media technology sector specifically within the areas of engineering, technical operations, sales, marketing and business development.
Applications are welcome from women who are working full-time, part-time or freelance and of any age group above the age of 18. Applications for all schemes open today and close on 14 April 2023. All programmes run for six months from May – November 2023.
Mentees benefit from a range of multiple programmes of work and support including one-to-one mentoring contact with their pairing, monthly mentee group meetings, peer-to-peer support from fellow mentees, and access to regular face-to-face industry networking events and training sessions.
Sadie Groom, founder of Rise, said: “We are delighted to announce the 2023 mentoring programme and to be delivering a significant amount of schemes globally again this year. We know that the support and significant investment provided through the programme is needed to encourage and help women to boost their confidence, thrive and reach their potential and succeed in our industry.”
