I mentioned last week that I was standing for election as an eLN Director.
Well, I won.
My focus is going to be on mentoring – a topic I’ve mentioned before. Before saying what I’ll be doing, I’m really keen to understand what people want from mentoring. In his excellent book about the lack of diversity in the UK broadcasting industry, Lenny Henry suggests:
This is, in may places, to counteract criticism and end up as nothing more than ‘learning theatre’.
Trust me, the eLN won’t have mentoring theatre.
