EY – New parent mentoring scheme

  • Maternity buddy scheme replaced with transition mentoring scheme open to all parents, complementing existing formal career and family mentoring/coaching.
  • New scheme based on requests from members of EY’s Family Network for targeted support during the transition to parenthood, ideally from colleagues and peers who understand the working environment.
  • Scheme designed to be self-sustaining, encouraging today’s mentees to become tomorrow’s mentors. Video guides designed for mentees and mentors are available online.
