United by a theme of leadership, each participating IIC member will be part of a cohort of their peers. The process will enable a whole group of IIC members to share their experiences with each other, build up professional skillsets and leadership experience, strengthen support networks and achieve career goals. Each participant will also benefit from the support of a mentor as part of a series of three one-to-one mentoring sessions over a two-month period.
Our mentors are senior sector leaders who have demonstrated clear leadership within the field through skilled advocacy, ethical practice, and a commitment to developing the conservation field through investing in people and talent. This places them in a unique position to support our profession during this unprecedented time.
Whether you are thinking about working as a freelancer, are leading your own private practice, or looking to take the next step as a senior manager or head of department, as a participant in the programme you will be able to test your ideas, gain insights from your mentor’s experience, and develop confidence to apply this within your context in a community of peers.
