The 30% Club sport and business mentoring scheme
Our collaboration with the 30% Club has recently extended to help build the pipeline and parity of women on sports boards, and now matches women leaders working in sporting organisations with male and female mentors who are leaders of corporate organisations.
This scheme is rooted in the belief that no matter what our choice of career, we can all benefit profoundly from escaping our silos and engaging with different perspectives. It challenges the status quo by matching senior men and women in business - rather than sports people - to mentor women in sport, primarily through dedicated and exclusive partnerships between individual businesses and single sports (e.g. matching 20 senior leaders of Ricoh to 20 women working at British Cycling).
In its inaugural year, we are delighted to have matched more than 120 individuals from a wide range of sports with mentors.
