Women’s Futures – Global Mentoring Programme & Support Networks
In Diverse Company have developed an online global mentoring and support network for women globally; Women’s Futures. The programme launched on 8th March 2019 in celebration and acknowledgement of International Women’s Day.
Women’s Futures aims to increase women’s economic empowerment through supporting women globally to return or enter the workplace. The programme has a focus on women returning to the workplace for all reasons; whether that is maternity leave, caring for others, bereavement leave, a long-term illness or another reason.
All mentoring relationships and support networks will benefit from global and diverse perspectives, using technology to connect the groups. The technology used within the mentoring relationships is available on all devices and will promote confidence and familiarity with using technology as a utility.
We’re proud to have kicked-off this programme with a day of online mentoring workshops that included:
• Stories and experiences from a range of experienced mentors around the globe
• More about why the programme is being set up, and the impact it will have
• Information about the mentoring programme and how you can get involved as a mentor or mentee
• How you can influence your organisation to continue to support women to return and enter the workplace, and support #balanceforbetter
We’ve got some really talented mentors from Asia, the US and Europe and from a range of industries including finance, engineering, marketing, retail and the public sector. Also, Women from around the world have been registering with us as mentees seeking solutions to various issues and suggestions on how to reach goals in their work journeys.
