Speed Mentoring International Women’s day Special

Speed Mentoring:

Think ‘speed dating’, but for your career!

If you ever wanted your own board of senior advisers, people who are established business leaders who have been there and done it. They will advise you on how to succeed in your careers.

If you’re lucky they may also be able to share their contacts with you!

If you would like to have this opportunity the speed mentoring will take place an hour before the power series event.

In 1 hour you will create 4 mentoring relationships and spend 15 minutes with a mentor.

Why Attend?

 This is an opportunity to hear from a panel of leading Business Woman figures and discover their secrets to success.

 If you were ever put off going after your dream job, senior position or starting your own business, please think again.

This event is about breaking all those barriers and providing you with guidance and connections to make it happen.

Career City Conference

The Event

Career City Conference Meets Breaking Barriers 2019 is a one day conference designed to bridge the career aspiration gap between high performing students from low socioeconomic backgrounds and companies looking for diverse talent.  

The day will feature workshops and talks held by the UK’s most senior leaders. There will be an employer zone for attendees to meet employers and hear about opportunities that they have available.   

What makes Career City Conference special is the fact that attendees will have to apply to attend. They will be selected based on their grades and social economic data. Meaning that the attendees who will be present are those who truly need the opportunities.  

Companies who exhibit and take part in the day will benefit from engaging with a diverse talent pool, that is hungry, educated and stem from a catchment pool that they are currently not reaching.  

Our goal after the event is to benefit as many attendees with mentoring and career days delivered in partnership with our corporate sponsors.
