Ok Mentor provides young women with free training and mentorship opportunities in the creative industries.
Now, senior figures from brands including Pinterest, MADE and Headspace have joined Ok Mentor’s new all-female advisory network.
Founded by Stef Stanley and Liz Stone, it is led entirely by female volunteers from companies including Amazon, Bumble and diptyque.
Its mission is to give young women aged 21-27 the tools to succeed faster, influence the global economy and close the gender pay gap.
The new 20-strong advisory network will work closely with Ok Mentor’s existing board and committee members, with a focus on expanding Ok Mentor’s reach and bringing new ideas and expertise to the curriculum. High-profile members that have joined the new network include Lauren Spearman, Head of Brand Advocacy at MADE, Caroline Pay, Chief Creative Office at Headspace and Sarah Jenkins, MD at Saatchi & Saatchi.
Stef Stanley, co-founder of Ok Mentor, said: “Our new advisory network will play an important role in broadening our network and increasing the opportunities available to young female creatives. It’s inspiring to see so many senior women offering their time and expertise to support the next generation of female talent.”
