Event Synopsis
Mentoring is a system of support that can be activated to advance more women in their careers. A mentor’s role can range from providing guidance on upskilling, emotional support, preparation for career development opportunities and access to networks that might otherwise be missed.

Join and take part in speed mentoring sessions with Emma Feltham Head of IT Delivery at The National Trust, Jane Deal IT Director at The Law Society and appointed female leaders who are CITF Mentors. 

These ‘teaser sessions’ designed for members interested in woman-2-woman mentoring specifically from female leaders. This will provide an introduction session into how a mentoring relationship for career and personal development works.

This session aims for you to:

  •  Experience a mentoring session to gain first-hand experience on the potential benefits mentoring can contribute towards your career development, confidence, and self-esteem.

Target Audience

Open to all CITF Members who would like to understand more about women-2-women mentoring for themselves, peers, and organisations.



Rachel West

Head of Projects, Mishcon de Reya


Head of Projects in the Technology department for Mishcon de Reya, managing a team of 7 people and reporting into our CTO.  I've been at Mishcon for nearly 3 years, before that I spent 18 months at Informa in their Business Intelligence division, and 12 years at LexisNexis, where I worked my way up from a Publishing systems role to Programme manager.  I studied English literature at university, and started my career in the editorial team at Penguin books, so I'm especially keen to encourage women who did not necessarily start with a love of maths or computer science to consider roles with a technical element.I really want to build a more diverse and inclusive culture within tech, where women can thrive.
