Women Ahead partner with the 30% Club to deliver their cross-company mentoring scheme in the UK.

The 30% Club cross-company mentoring scheme

"One of the 30% Club initiatives I am most proud of is our cross-company mentoring scheme. Women Ahead have been invaluable. We've gone up a notch since they came on board, and we're delighted to be working with them in significantly extending the scheme."

Helena Morrissey CBE

CEO Newton, Founder, The 30% Club

The 30% Club has become synonymous with building gender balance on boards since 2010, and has a pioneering cross-company, cross-sector mentoring scheme that aims to develop a broader pipeline of women and 'balance the pyramid' at all levels.


This scheme matches male and female leaders to mentor women from a different organisation, and offers monthly events that provide high-touch learning and a platform for building networks

In its third year in the UK - and in is second year of being delivered by Women Ahead - the initiative has had tremendous success, and is the largest of its kind in the world. With more than 630 mentors and mentees and 47 organisations taking part - this scheme represents the power of mentoring at its best and is now expanding globally.
