Diversity Mentoring Programme

King’s Business School’s Diversity Mentoring programme is a six-month long mentoring relationship designed to connect undergraduates students at King’s Business School with experienced alumni working in a related business field. The programme focuses on supporting students from groups which are under-represented in senior level roles.

The mentoring programme runs from October-April during which mentors and mentees meet for about one-to-two hours per month. Participants have access to an online platform to connect with other mentors and mentees, templates and resources, and invitations to networking events.

As an alumni mentor you will develop your leadership, coaching and active listening skills by supporting your student mentee with their career development goals.

We are currently accepting expressions of interest for 2021/2022 alumni mentors who will support female students, BAME students and students in receipt of the King's Living Bursary at King’s Business School. To register, contact jina.an@kcl.ac.uk

Please note student mentee applications will open in September 2021.
