SOHO HOUSE working with their community

Soho House worked with us to launch the Open House mentoring programme, building links with young creatives who live near the Houses. Each young person is paired with a Soho House member and given a membership to become part of the community.

We were able to forge lasting partnerships…and make the creative industries more representative of class, gender and ethnicity

INNOVATING WORK PLACEMENTS WITH WE ARE SOCIAL

With We Are Social we launched a refreshingly different kind of work placement. Aimed at young people from low-income backgrounds, there were no CVs, no tea-making and no “who you know” applications allowed.

The CMN training has had a huge impact. Being paired with a mentee from a school has been the real game changer. The participants have been able to apply their learnings and use their new tools immediately

OPEN UP TO NEW YOUNG TALENT

A selection of the inspiring work from our diverse network

“Creative Mentor Network gives you a different perspective. It’s very easy, when you work in the creative industries and you’re a middle class white man, to think everyone shares the same views. You end up advertising to yourself. ”
— Jasper Hunter, Head of Strategic Innovation, M&C Saatchi
