School of Public Policy's Women's Network

The School of Public Policy's Women's Network marks our latest student initiative. The Women's Network has been set up to connect School of Public Policy students to women who are trailblazing in the public policy sector and to educate students on women's issues. The Women's Network engages in many activities such as running educational events and promoting research by women.

The Women's Network latest endeavour would like to focus on mentoring.This is open to both men and women from the School of Public Policy's alumni community. 

What is it about? 

You could discuss issues around work-life balance for women, how to promote yourself in interviews and at networking events, how to tackle gender discrimination and how to engage in salary negotiation. 

Personal development topics could include leadership skills, identifying strengths and weaknesses or learning to rebalance a career with extra-curricular hobbies and activities.

The Women's Network also highly encourages taking the opportunity for reverse mentoring. 

What does it involve?

The commitment to be a mentor will include at least three hours in person or via skype between February and June 2019. Once the programme starts in February, it will be the responsibility of the mentor/mentee pair to organise their mentoring schedule. You do not have to be based in London to participate as a mentor. 

How can I participate?

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please fill in this form. The Women's Network will be in touch with you soon to help match you to a student. Please note, all form submissions will be shared with the School of Public Policy's Alumni Engagement Officer.
