OK COOL partners with Ok Mentor


With mentees from the likes of Diptyque, BBC, By Rotation and leading creative agency OK COOL, this mentorship programme aims to help women secure jobs in the creative industry and reach senior leadership roles faster.

Ok Mentor was founded by female entrepreneurs Liz Stone (Entrepreneur of the Year – Female Frontier Awards 2022) and Stef Stanley, with the overall mission of providing free training and crash mentorship for creative women, from creative experts.

Ok Mentor is a social enterprise that provides a variety of free training and partnership opportunities for women looking to upskill, or businesses looking to develop their teams.

Recently, Ok Mentor has doubled down on its efforts to create impact within the industry by partnering with award-winning social and creative content agency OK COOL. The agency’s reputation and contacts within the industry will help Ok Mentor to reach a wider audience of potential mentees and mentors.

OK COOL’s own ethos aligns closely with Ok Mentor, with the agency celebrating a senior leadership team that is 77% female – a stark difference to the UK average of 30%.

Ok Mentor’s Managing Director Jessica Reichert comments: “This partnership comes at the perfect time for our social enterprise.”

“Q1 has seen us launch a new mentorship platform powered by Intros.ai and welcome tens of new mentees looking for growth opportunities and career advancement.”

“The partnership with OK COOL will have a positive impact on our organisation and help us deliver more meaningful mentorship to even more women.”

Ok Mentor Corporate
– a programme designed for businesses to help them accelerate the growth of their internal teams through training and development programmes.

Ok Mentor’s Co-Founder, Liz Stone, says: “We started Ok Mentor as a bi-annual four day crash course and over time this has evolved into a 1:1 crash mentorship programme which has helped thousands of women in over 52 countries.”

“We appreciate that finding the time to take courses and up your skillset is difficult in such a fast-paced industry, which is why we focused on a crash mentorship approach. All 1:1 mentoring is done in a 3 hour / 3 month commitment between the mentor and mentee, giving mentees the opportunity to learn from a variety of women and giving mentors flexibility in their busy schedules.”
