International Womens Day: Mentor Matchmaking (London)
This IWD we're going to support you to support other women (and people from underrepresented groups) by hosting a mentor matchmaking evening! At every point in your career, you have something to give as a mentor and something to gain through being mentored so come along and find your perfect match!
The theme for International Women's Day 2020 is #EachforEqual and is all about challenging stereotypes, fighting bias, broadening perceptions, improving situations and celebrating the achievements of all women.
This is obviously a lot of what OHT is all about. And what could be more IWD or more OHT than providing support and guidance to another person, to help them become a future leader in healthtech? That's why we have teamed up with the awesome team at Health Foundry to bring you an evening of mentor/mentee matchmaking!
OHT covers all varieties of healthtech and often you can benefit from a mentor-mentee relationship with someone who is not directly in your field. So whatever area of healthtech you work in (or hope to work in), there's sure to be someone who will be your perfect match!
We need to know how many of our attendees are signing up as mentees and how many are signing up as mentors so please choose the ticket type that reflects what you are signing up as. So if you're a mentor looking for a mentee, choose the "Mentor Ticket" etc.
We have a little fund to make our events more accessible (woop woop!)
If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to 30 euros (but ask for more if you need, worth a try) per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if travelling around is tricky, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live-captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too. Find out more
