This is our story…

WERKIN is re-envisioning mentorship as a career development tool that is inclusive, accessible, and integrated into our workdays. Modern mentorship is open to all, not only those with connections. WERKIN raises the visibility of underrepresented talent.

Hayley Sudbury is founder and CEO of WERKIN. Having built a career in financial services, Hayley was conflicted about the opportunities and satisfaction that industry gave her, while also seeing a lack of role models that looked like her, a gay woman, at the top. Hayley founded WERKIN to democratise access to mentorship at global organisations with tech-enabled sponsorship, supporting the LGBTQ+ community, people of color, women, people with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups.

There’s even a TED talk about it…
