Mentoring is a buzzword in the business world and many companies see mentors both internally and externally as key drivers of performance, particularly for women moving into leadership roles. The rise of Human-Centred Design skills being brought into mainstream business globally has seen a growing need for diversity across product and service development.

After all, if we’re not designing for all, then who are we really designing for?

Academy Xi is pleased to welcome a diverse panel of leaders in business, experience, and product design. The panelists will share stories about their current projects, their emergence as leaders in the field, and memorable design case studies. With a particular focus on mentoring, the speakers will reflect on their own experience of how they were nurtured in their career in the notoriously difficult digital ecosystem.

This event will inspire and educate with stories of success and overcoming adversity and everyone will find practical advice on how to navigate their career journey sobering.

At Leadership by Design: Mentoring, we will immerse you in a conversation that will explore:

- Diversity and inclusion and their role in today's leadership landscape,
- How unconscious bias affects everyone,
- How to find a great mentor,
- How mentoring can shape your career, and set you up for success.

Don't miss this thoughtful discussion that will demonstrate how the consideration of everyone's perspective will lead to a greater experience for all.
