'Group Mentoring: How the mCircles programme currently supports women in AECOM'
PRESENTER 1: KATE MORRIS, BSc (Hons) C.Eng MICE- MARKET SECTOR DIRECTOR (EMIA) STRATEGIC PLANNING & ADVISORY, TRANSPORTATION - AECOM
The mCircles programme is a female only group mentoring scheme that supports women across all areas of the business. The programme was developed based on initial discussions with women within the organisation and the types of challenges they were facing. From this a number of 'themes' were identified and groups of women brought together with a mentor to share experiences. The presentation will provide an overview of how the programme was developed, how it currently operates and the value it is providing to women within the organisation. It will explore the merits of group mentoring and how this is informing the wider Diversity and Inclusion Agenda within AECOM.
Kate is a Chartered Engineer with over 25 years experience in the transport sector. She is currently a Director at AECOM responsible for the Strategic and Advisory Sector across Europe, Middle East, Africa and India.
