Bloom is on a mission to ensure women have equal opportunity in the communications industry, by harnessing the power of their real voices. We strive to future proof women’s careers, spearhead industry change and pay it forward for the next generation. To fulfil this ambition and capitalise on the brilliant network of women we have built, we are launching a new programme: Bloom Boost.
Bloom Boost is designed to support, grow and empower our female industry leaders of tomorrow. The programme is open to all former Bloom mentees who have not yet reached the 7+ years experience required to join the Bloom members network. Owing to the current COVID-19 climate we couldn’t think of a better time to launch this amazing new programme, where new Boost members will have access to Bloom member support, a dedicated community and new workshops.
We understand that it is a challenging time for some so this year we are waiving the membership fee and instead, ask for a small donation of £10 or £20 to Women’s Aid: our charity partner. Unfortunately, there has been a huge increase in domestic abuse cases due to isolation and so Women’s Aid is in desperate need of funding so they can continue to support and reach the women they need to and make a difference in their lives.
Are you a former Bloom mentee? Excellent! What will you get out of the new Bloom Boost programme? We’re glad you asked!
As part of the network you will get access to:
• Quarterly Bloom Boost mixers with guest speakers
• Skillsharing workshops
• Mentoring opportunities
• A dedicated Bloom Boost network via Slack
• Previews and discounts to Bloom public events including BloomFest
• Bloom Leadership Team & Summer and Christmas events
We would hate to see our mentee graduates leave us for good, so we invite all of you to remain part of the Bloom family.
PLEASE NOTE THIS EXCITING PROGRAMME IS ONLY FOR PREVIOUS MENTEES WHO HAVE BEEN APART OF THE BLOOM MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME.
Subscription closes on Sunday 10th May as we want to kick start this straight away for you, and we have a packed-full agenda ready and waiting. After the 10th May you will receive an email with a new member pack and link to your main comms platform, Slack. If you have paid and don’t receive this email on the 10th of May then please do drop Veronica Stevenson an email at email@example.com (please be aware that we are 100% volunteers and things do sometimes take time to get back to!)
We will welcome you to the programme with a virtual introduction to Bloom Boost, with our guest speaker Marsha from the amazing BelEve. BelEve will be partnering with Bloom Boost to ensure you have opportunities to skill share, mentor and of course have fun with other Bloom Boosters.
We look forward to welcoming you to Bloom Boost 2020!
