After a very successful first year in 2017, The WIJ Mentoring Programme has now expanded to incorporate two concurrent schemes.

The first is for women already established in journalism, who are looking for more senior positions. Mentors for this scheme will be carefully selected from our committee.

The second scheme is for women who are in the earlier stages of journalism, looking for invaluable guidance and experience. Mentors for this scheme will be made up of last year’s mentees, who, thanks to their mentors, are now in an array of very senior positions.

This year over 150 mentees have been paired with mentors to take part in a year-long programme.
