Media Trust & Leo Burnett Reframing Disability Mentoring Programme

Media Trust and Leo Burnett have partnered to deliver this new mentoring programme for disabled talent entering the advertising industry.

We are very excited to have launched a new partnership with Leo Burnett to jointly move the dial on disabled talent in advertising. Our new Mentoring Programme hand-matched 9 Disabled and/or Neurodivergent mentees at entry level or early stage in their careers with 9 senior mentors from across Leo Burnett UK.

This programme continues our work to ensure the media industry becomes more receptive to and representative of disabled talent.

The mentoring programme harnesses the knowledge and skills of inspiring senior mentors from across Leo Burnett UK to support disabled advertising talent. Mentors and mentees have been matched and are working together one-on-one throughout the six-month virtual programme. The experience provides both mentees and mentors with personal and professional development opportunities. Mentees and mentors will come together for monthly mentoring circles including webinars, panels, and skill-enhancement workshops.

Applications for the programme are now CLOSED!

We are always looking for mentors for future programmes to support underrepresented creative industry talent. If you are interested, get in touch directly with

The structure and content of this programme will be adjusted for accessibility, including but not limited to, BSL interpretation, live captioning, resources in other formats etc. Leo Burnett & Media Trust are also offering bursaries to support mentees with any further personal access needs to participate in the programme. These could be the cost of caring cover if you have caring responsibilities or the cost of appropriate support if you have a physical or mental health condition. Since the programme will be delivered online, if you need financial assistance to pay for enhanced mobile/WiFi connectivity, headphones, webcams etc, please let us know.
