Black Leaders Mentoring and Reverse Mentoring Programme: Applications open

We are currently accepting applications for our 2024 Black Leaders Mentoring and Reverse Mentoring Programme. 

The Investment Association in collaboration with #TalkAboutBlack developed the Black Leaders Mentoring and Reverse Mentoring Programme to help equip senior Black leaders with the tools and networks needed to achieve their professional goals. Acknowledging the barriers to advancement that Black professionals face, this mentoring and reverse mentoring programme aids in establishing a pipeline for underrepresented talent to the C-Suite. In addition to aiding mentees in developing their networks and professional leadership skills,  the programme will also provide reverse mentoring to current executive leaders by allowing them to hear and act upon insight into the lived experiences of Black people in the industry.

The programme lasts for twelve months, with mentees and mentors meeting every six to eight weeks throughout the year.

Applications for 2024 are now open. Additional information about the programme and the application for mentees can be found here. The application process will remain open until 20 November.  

Hear from 2023 BLP mentee, Nneka Orji from Alvarez & Marsal, share her insights and experience on the programme.
