GDLN Webinar  – Webinar Series Invitation



Mentoring is a key skill for fostering professional development:

  • The term has many definitions and connotations but at its core it refers to the role of a wise and trusted adviser, assisting in the guidance and development of a peer within a particular field of expertise.
  • Mentoring can be a valuable way to help others improve their knowledge, skills and confidence. It helps them to achieve goals for their own personal development and progression within any organisation, and it benefits that organisation accordingly.

This series of six webinars will examine the skills required by mentors to successfully work with their peers, within any organisational structure whether it is a government agency, academic institution, NGO or corporate environment.
