During 2022, the WWF global mentoring programme saw an increasing number of staff joining the programme from Africa, Asia and South/Middle America. 60% of mentees and nearly 30% of mentors came from the Global South. Regardless of location, mentees say that mentoring assisted them with work-related challenges, built skills on the job and made them more confident. Mentors were motivated by the programme and found it developed their leadership skills.

Nine short, interactive free-webinars (during UK lunchtime) provide a safe space to develop and discuss your mentor CPD. Suitable for internal or external mentors, come along on the following dates for free learning and sharing together.

I am still glowing with pride that I ran the London Marathon last week. Yes, I was very slow — 5 hours and 8 minutes to be precise! However, it is 19 years since I last ran a marathon, I am over 60 and have had three major operations since 2019, so I am actually thrilled with my result.
