Mentoring
IoIC
 
 
 

IoIC mentoring is a member benefit which is designed to facilitate informal connections between internal communication professionals and support both mentees and mentors in their professional development.

Through careful consideration of your individual requirements we will connect you with a like-minded professional with whom you can develop an ongoing encouraging and confidential relationship to help you achieve your objectives or simply share ideas and challenges with. 

The programme is designed to benefit both parties and provides the opportunity to connect with someone outside of your organisation to share expertise and knowledge, develop new skills and tools, build self-confidence and grow your personal network.

Promoting diversity and inclusion

As the UK's only professional body dedicated to internal communication, we have a unique opportunity and responsibility to do everything we can to create a more inclusive, diverse and accessible profession.

We would therefore like to offer anyone from an underrepresented group who is either seeking to enter or progress within the IC profession the opportunity to apply for the mentoring scheme even if they are not currently an IoIC member.
