The first year of our pilot NURTURE mentoring programme was designed and delivered for the RTPI by Women in Transport. In its commitment to improving and developing in all areas of its 2020-2030 Corporate Strategy, the RTPI conducted evaluation and feedback to inform the future development of the programme.
Responding anonymously to the survey, mentees highlighted the inspiring relationships that grew out of the programme, where mentors helped them to think about how they approach challenges in more positive ways, coming away from each session with a sense of satisfaction. Some reported finding new, senior roles within the industry following their mentorship.
Mentors reported the useful feeling they had helping mid-career planners, as well as underpinning their own career development. Outside of professional development, however, mentors noted the feeling of wellbeing they had helping their mentees, dealing with issues from management to life changing career decisions.
