Lloyd’s LGBTQ+ Mentoring programme

Who is it available for?

LGBTQ+ mentees

Due to the specific nature of the programme, those applying to be mentees should identify as LGBTQ+ and currently work within Lloyd’s Corporation or the Lloyd’s market. Those interested will need to complete an application form and submit it before the deadline.

Mentees should be clear on what they hope to gain from the mentoring relationship so we can select and pair the best applicants.

Experienced mentors

We are also looking for experienced professionals who are able to mentor LGBTQ+ talent in our industry. These mentors could either be experienced LGBTQ+ professionals themselves or experienced allies who want to help support and develop LGBTQ+ talent.

This also creates a fantastic space where Exec sponsors of Pride networks can directly get involved to support the aims of your network – by stepping forward as mentors.

How will it work?

Once all applications have been reviewed, we will have a set number of mentoring partnerships available and will select individuals based on the strength of their application (in the case where we have more prospective mentees than mentors).

Participants will be contacted in late August with the outcome of their application and details of their mentoring partnership. Partnerships will be formed based on the criteria with which mentees and mentors have indicated on their application forms. Where participants have specifically requested an LGBTQ+ mentor then we will try to facilitate this as much as possible.

The mentoring partnerships will last for 6 months with a range of supporting materials. Although not fixed, we recommend mentoring partnerships meet once a month during this period but this will be discussed in early conversations and supporting materials. At the end of this period the mentoring relationship will cease, although in some cases individuals may decide to continue if this is mutually agreed.

What's the application process?

Prospective mentors and mentees should complete the relevant application form and return it by 15th August 2022 at the latest. Please be sure to complete all sections of the form to allow us to effectively match you where you have been successful.
