"I've really valued how being part of the LSE Staff Mentoring Scheme has given me an opportunity to share my own professional experience with colleagues across the School. Mentoring is a very much a two way process and I've learnt a lot from those I've mentored, and feel inspired by everyone I've met through the programme."
