We would like to invite you to join us in celebrating and recognising the power of mentoring for young people at our 20th Anniversary conference for Mentoring Works. Our panel of speakers will include Dr Anthony Mann, Director of Policy and Research, Education and Employers Taskforce; Amrita Das, Mentoring Campaign Lead for the Careers and Enterprise Company; and Rachel Engel Associate Director. Macquarie Group Foundation. Participants from business, education, research, and mentoring funders and providers will have the opportunity to discuss the impact of mentoring in transforming opportunities for young people, and how it can be made available to a much wider group of students.
Topics will include:
- What is the true value of mentoring?
- What is the business case for mentoring?
- What role should business play?
- How do we engage the disaffected?
After the conference we would be delighted for you to stay and join the 20 Years Celebration Awards Event from 4.30 onwards where we will be joined by further guests, former mentors and mentees for a celebration of Mentoring Works with drinks and canapes.
