Rise Launches Second Monitoring Scheme

News Image
Rise, the advocacy group for gender diversity in broadcast technology, has launched its second mentoring scheme.

The UK-based mentoring programme will work with a further 20 mentees from the broadcast industry, with each mentee receiving 12 hours of mentoring contact with their assigned mentor. The mentees will also have the opportunity to meet with their mentee group on a monthly basis, attend networking events and workshops throughout the six-month period.

Last year, industry experts from companies including ITV, Clear-Com, Deluxe and Molinare came together to share their expertise and support the women as they progressed with their careers. The first Rise scheme demonstrated how mentoring and guidance can change and empower women across the broadcast manufacturing and services sector. Feedback from the 2018 mentoring scheme echoes this statement with mentees and mentors stating the scheme provided "new confidence, fantastic knowledge and inspiration", in addition to "opportunities to engage with the wider broadcast industry".

"We are absolutely delighted to announce our second Rise mentoring programme. Last year's group saw women grasp new opportunities, learn about other areas of the sector and embrace the confidence that came with being part of the programme. We look forward to supporting 20 new women throughout 2019 and seeing the impact that can be made for both mentees and mentors, this time round," said Carrie Wootten, Rise Director.

Mentees can apply to the scheme online and the deadline for entries is 29 March 2019.
The scheme will be supported by leading industry companies:
• Platinum Sponsor - Avid
• Gold Sponsors - NEP and Clear-Com
• Silver Sponsors - Pixelogic and DPP
