LEADING INTO THE FUTURE MENTOR PROGRAM
Mentoring based on 'Leadership of the Heart' between Established and Emerging Leaders .
WHY MENTOR ?
“We are entering an era where the role of women as peace builders in all sectors is needed more than ever.
“It is well established that the economic empowerment of women isn't just good for women, it's good for everyone. Likewise, there is a growing body of evidence (including the latest report by McKinsey & Co) showing that when more women sit at the decision-making tables, better decisions are made.
Despite record numbers of women graduating college and entering the workforce, data still points to a 'leaky pipeline' - a large chasm between the number of women starting out on the professional track and how many advancing to senior positions. One of the many ways we can help to 'leak-proof' this pipeline is through mentoring.
A 2017 study by professional services firm Egon Zehnder found that only 54% of women have access to senior leaders who act as mentors or informal sponsors in their career.” Mentoring Matters "
