Mentees who walk with us across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Canada are women early, mid or senior in their careers. They come from every sector and industry, from corporate to government, not-for-profits and start ups. Each one is looking to network with good women and step forward in her career.
OUR ASPIRING MENTEES
"My mentor provided her real-life experience in building a board portfolio. She highlighted the need to have a clear plan, use existing networks, and identify people who may be outside of your network."
"It's great to hear from mentors about their own journeys, which have all generally included the good, the bad and the ugly. I think it's also important to find someone outside of your usual friend / family / work circle to confide in, someone who can bring you a fresh perspective. What's not to love?"
"I had the fear that if I wasn't firm I would appear weak due to my appearance and mannerism. I joined Mentor Walks to meet women in leadership positions, and take lessons on how they lead people without the negative stereotypes."
