In partnership with Disney UK & Ireland, AWUK aims to connect industry veterans with the next generation of female talent seeking guidance and support in their professional endeavors.
Animated Women UK, in partnership with Disney UK & Ireland, has announced a mentorship program in partnership for its members. The focus will be on fostering connection and engagement with female veterans of the VFX and animation industries, pairing them with the next generation of female talent.
AWUK members who are interested in participating will be asked to fill out a questionnaire describing their industry experience and will subsequently be matched with an individual seeking advice and support. Using the Prospela professional network website and its chat feature, participants will be able to connect and exchange communication at their convenience.
“AWUK is very excited to be offering a mentor scheme and have been able to do so by Disney's sponsorship,” commented Louise Hussey, co-chair, VFX, Animated Women UK. “We love the way that this scheme, hosted by Prospela, and pioneered by Access VFX works. It enables communication through a digital platform that allows for mentors to be able to respond as and when their schedules allow. In these times, support and help are welcomed by us all, so please do sign up!”
