The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has announced the global rollout of its mentoring programme following a successful pilot in six markets.
ACCA said the programme is an attempt to connect its affiliates and global network of professionally qualified members, whose “wealth of knowledge” can be shared with others.
It added that the programme aims to “make impactful connections, providing opportunities for personal and professional growth”.
It comes as the association said that digital technology is “reshaping relationships:, adding that it has “never been more important, or as easy, to build meaningful connections online”.
ACCA’s streamlined mentoring site supports the mentors and mentees’ progress throughout their mentoring journey.
It also “helps people to set goals and build a culture of inclusion”.
ACCA’s Reza Ali, director of professional education, said: “ACCA is really excited about this new mentoring programme, connecting our global family.
“Supporting our members and future members to succeed is at the heart of what we do. We’re a super-connector and we want to use the power of our connections and our value of inclusion to support the future. Our members will be able to contribute to building a community of mutual support.”
