Building Balance

Welcome to Building Balance, a network and mentoring scheme which focusses on addressing the gender imbalance across the development industry. We want to see a better gender balance at more senior levels in the development industry. We believe that the best way to achieve this is by bringing together those in senior-level positions with those at a junior level, with the aim of developing a pipeline of women with a pathway to senior-level roles.

Building Balance will provide a mentoring scheme, by aligning senior professionals with aspiring junior women in development, whilst also providing a platform to share stories of success.

Mentee Sign Up

Over the past few months, Goodman Masson has been sharing industry-specific gender research with senior women in the industry, which has led to discussions about what these gender insights mean for the industry and the best method of improving this imbalance. This has led the creation of our mentoring network which we believe is a fantastic platform to share and support others within the industry.
