Since 2015, the ”Creative Mentorship” programme builds and develops the network of interested mentors, outstanding professionals from different fields. They recognize the mentorship as a method of lifelong learning and exchange of knowledge and experience, so they want to share their experience and support young and prospective professionals.
By building a wide network of potential mentors, the ”Creative Mentorship” programme is able to provide better support for the mentees. At the same time, knowledge, skills, contacts and other resources that are available to mentors through the Pool of Mentors, can be precious for their personal and professional development, as well. The Pool of Mentors currently has more than 100 members from different professional areas. Only a portion of them takes part in the active Creative Mentorship cycle. Other members have the opportunity to participate in the mentorship training, workshops, lectures and meetings, and to provide short-term support as co-mentors, if needed.
The mentors engaged in the ”Creative Mentorship” programme are leading professionals who come from different generations and fields, from Serbia and abroad, but they identify themselves with the values of the programme and participate in it pro bono. They are experts in the fields of culture, business, politics, marketing, media, education, science, activism, diplomacy etc. and want to share their rich professional and life experience with younger generations and thereby invest in people and communities.
In the first three programme cycles, the mentors were local and international professionals, such as: Jasna Dimitrijević, General Manager of the Kolarac Foundation; Aida Ćorović, human rights activist; Dušan Tomić, KPMG partner; Tony O’Brien, former Director of the British Council for the Western Balkans; Mette Kjuel Nielsen, former Danish Ambassador in Serbia; Marija Desivojević -Cvetković, Delta Holding Vice President; Maja Lalić, Creative Director of Mikser; Olga Svoboda, Director of GI Group HR Solutions; Branko Dimitrijević, professor and art theoretician; Milan Petrović, President of the Serbian Association of Managers; Borut Vild, one of the leading graphic designers in the region and professor, and many others.
