Applications to the year-long programme opened for mentors and mentees
"I have been mentoring with Fluid since the 2013/14 cohort. On that occasion, I signed up both as a mentor and to find a mentor who would keep me focused on my goal of co-founding a studio while advancing my career at the one where I was employed at the time.
My mentees have ranged from talented students about to start looking for their first job to talented qualified professionals looking to navigate office politics and dynamics in order to advance their careers.
Having lived in the UK for 22 years, first as a student and then as part of the local built environment workforce, I have invaluable insight which Fluid has allowed me to pass on to others. And in doing so, I have been able to keep the promise I made to myself to change the framework which tends to hold those from diverse backgrounds back.
If you are looking for ways to create an impact, I would recommend you to join Fluid and create real change by using your position and experience to lift others."
