Reading, Berkshire, UK, March 16, 2021 -- IPI, a digital contact centre provider, has teamed up with Hackney-based, black-led not-for-profit youth organisation, The Mentoring Lab. IPI is supporting The Mentoring Lab by providing mentoring sessions on tech careers to young people living in disadvantaged and marginalised communities in Hackney, London, and the surrounding area.
IPI is undertaking a series of virtual mentoring after-school sessions, designed to help 10–17-year-olds, typically from black and marginalised communities, develop new skills and an understanding of how to make a career in the technology sector. IPI’s sessions cover every aspect of the tech industry and how technology companies operate, from ‘tech for good’ and IT security, to digital marketing and entrepreneurship. Members from several departments of the IPI team have volunteered their time, including CEO Sat Sanghera who led a session covering the importance of self-belief in building and leading a business.
IPI became involved with The Mentoring Lab thanks to its partnership with UK Youth, a national charity that runs a range of skills development programmes designed to reach and engage young people who don’t traditionally have access to personal development opportunities. It partners with organisations such as The Mentoring Lab to support young people across the country.
"The Mentoring Lab is an inspiring organisation that makes a real difference to the lives of the young people it supports. Through an evidence-based mentoring framework and active youth advisory board, they help young people to develop and achieve new and exciting skills that truly reflect their goals and interests," said Carrie Stultz, corporate social responsibility manager at IPI. "This is also particularly close to home for IPI as we are committed to supporting future generations in the tech industry by investing in their bright futures today. The Mentoring Lab is also based up the road from our London office, and it is so important to us that we give back to local communities, a value we share with Elaine, and her fantastic team."
"We’re thrilled that IPI has decided to partner with The Mentoring Lab," said Elaine Thomas, Founder CEO of The Mentoring Lab. "IPI’s technology expertise makes its team an invaluable resource for our young people who are eager to learn about new opportunities and skills. There are so many different trajectories into the tech sector and a wide breadth of career options; with IPI’s mentors, our young people feel included, seeing career possibilities and opportunities they’d not normally be exposed to had they not engaged with our services."
