Theirworld hosts digital skills sharing session

This afternoon Theirworld hosted a group of women for a speed mentoring session at the Royal Festival Hall at the Southbank Centre in London. The free 90 minute workshop was led by Theirworld’s President Sarah Brown and was made up of 25 women working in the digital sector acting as mentors to 25 women armed with questions on how to use digital technology in their careers.

Some of the mentors and mentees begin chatting

In a discussion at the end of the session, mentors Mel Varley and Jenny Halpern Prince shared tips and mentees gave feedback on what they learned.

One of the most popular tips: “Never be afraid to ask someone for advice”.

The speed mentoring was part of a week-long programme full of talks, workshops and performances at the Women of the World festival – for a recap of the events, click here.
