The first mentoring project from


she.grows 001

Welcome to the she.grows 001 open call – our latest mentoring scheme for women in the music industry.

Following the success of our pilot programme in 2017 when we paired 22 members of the shesaidso community with each other, this year we invite applications from women in a variety of areas across the business with the ambition to select a total of 100 women  and create 50 pairs. Mentee applications will be split based on industry vertical, career stage and objectives they wish to achieve by taking part in the scheme. These will then run through a series of probing reviews alongside mentor applications to determine the perfect pair – so please provide us with as much information (and passion!) as possible.

The pairs will be announced on September 17th, with the mentoring programme officials kicking off on September 24th. Each mentor and mentee pair will meet for a minimum of one hour per month, as well as part of a monthly event curated and hosted by on a range of topics that focus on professional development.

Every 10 pairs will be assigned their own Mentoring Manager will commit to spending time with either side of the partnership at least once a month, measuring satisfaction and taking feedback. We want to help you as much as possible, so once again, the more information you have for your MM each month the better.
