Meat Business Women mentoring

What is the Meat Business Women Mentoring programme?

We believe that all women working in the meat industry should have the tools they need to reach their goals.

A good mentoring relationship can be absolutely vital in making that happen and has the ability to transform your mindset, boost your confidence, your career prospects and the way you carry out your current job role.

Our mentorship programme makes it super easy for you to connect, exchange knowledge and gain new skills with our global community while helping meat businesses develop a strong pipeline of talent and future leaders. MBW members have full, free access to our mentoring programme.

Our members use their mentor relationships in a variety of ways. From significant changes in their career all the way through to needing advice on how to handle a specific situation at work.

“I couldn’t recommend getting a mentor enough, no matter what stage you are in your career, you’ll always benefit by hearing someone else’s experience.

The MBW mentor platform offers mentors from all sectors and I encourage all members to get a mentor.

There are hugely influential and experienced individuals that are very willing to give up a generous proportion of their time to help you develop and succeed.”

How can mentoring work for me?

So now we know the benefits of a strong mentor relationship, how exactly can it work for you? Inevitably, putting time aside for your own personal development is the one thing that slides down the to-do list when time is tight and our community has told us that they can find it difficult to prioritise their own goals.

But having a mentor or mentee can really make a difference to your career, goals and personal development. Here’s how:

  • Boost your self confidence
  • Develop your personal brand
  • Get help with a promotion or significant change
  • Get help with feeling lost, unmotivated or unchallenged
  • A listening ear and impartial advice

“After the last Meat Business Women event, I signed up to the mentor scheme and have just had my first call with my mentor.

I’m feeling very inspired, and it was so helpful to talk things through with her. It was a great way to start the day.

I’m looking forward to my next mentoring session with her.”
