THE PWA MENTORING PROGRAMME IS STARTING NOW!
Calls for application to join the
Professional Women's Association’s/PWA’s Mentoring Programme
for current and future leaders
Dear PWA Member,
One of the most important professional programmes of the Professional Women's Association is the Mentoring Programme.
The aim of the programme is to provide mentees with support from male and female leaders with great leadership experience for their professional development.
Women's economic responsibility is not just a matter of equal opportunities, this is an economic necessity, an economic interest, the key to the competitiveness of companies.
PWA is committed to support women in their leadership ambitions and to help their professional advancement through knowledge, experience and business networking opportunities. We are convinced that knowledge transfer is an individual and social responsibility and that the exchange of knowledge provides great opportunities to inspire each other. Therefore, PWA continues its unique mentoring programme in 2019.
We are awaiting applications of future mentees (1.), mentors (2.) and companies (3.) and we also kindly ask you to help us in promoting the programme by forwarding the call for application.
We hope that not only women but also men are going to join the programme because PWA does not divide the world only into men and women, we regard integrated thinking as valuable. There are also successful male leaders among the mentors, who agree with the goals of PWA and support the career development of women.
We have created the tradition, according to which PWA's experienced mentors help 30-35 male and female managers annually to be more successful in leadership, thus, they can contribute to the success of organisations (businesses and companies) in the longer run.
The operation of the programme:
The mentor and the mentee together define the personal goals, the mentor listens to, supports and gives the advice to help the mentee, and a written agreement is made between them.
The timing of the programme:
The pairs meet each month. If organising a personal meeting is not feasible, a Skype meeting can also be arranged.
