The Global Mentoring Walk is an opportunity to highlight the importance of women’s leadership, and to accelerate the impact of women leaders through mentoring.
Mentoring Walk events promote mentoring relationships between emerging and established women. Mentoring is an activity that empowers women to succeed, both on a local and global scale. Women who are mentored are more likely to become mentors themselves, paying forward the investment made in them by empowering even more women to be successful leaders. Surveys indicate that nearly two-thirds (65%) of women who have been mentored go on to become mentors themselves (Catalyst 2012).
As a result, the Global Mentoring Walk:
- Provides aspiring women professionals with the support and guidance they need to fulfill their goals.
- Instills the values of mentoring in rising leaders, who can then give back to future generations.
- Provides an environment for collaboration and networking among emerging and established women leaders within a community
