People Management;4/3/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 7, p12
This article reports on the plan of Hampshire Constabulary in England to launch a mentoring scheme to help LGBT staff with their career development. Sergeant Paula Henninghan-Finlay, diverse communities officer, said the scheme gave support to those going for new roles or promotions and that the mentoring, via one-to-one meetings, e-mails or phone, was based around individual needs. She added the scheme was part of an organization-wide mentoring project at sergeant rank, which meant individuals did not have to out themselves to access it.
