The scheme will pair mentees from across the UK with women in technical roles within J.P. Morgan. Mentors are available from various levels across the company, from junior software developers to senior tech leaders.

For women with a tech or STEM background, this provides an amazing opportunity to find a mentor who can help them progress in their careers over the next year. As part of the scheme, mentee’s will be given 12 months free access to the Finding Ada Network online network, where they will be able to make use of their world class mentorship platform and exclusive content covering careers advice, personal and professional development, plus HR policy and advocacy advice.

Mentoring has many proven benefits, including helping mentees to improve their soft skills, confidence and communication skills, as well as making them, on average, five times more likely to receive a promotion compared to non-mentees.

As we continue to adjust to the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, it is now more than ever that women need additional help and support. The Finding Ada Network, being online-based, is an ideal way to access the guidance you may need to further progress your career through these troubling times.

The scheme is open to any women in STEM who have a right to work in the UK.
