"The most satisfying aspect of the programme was being matched up with an amazing WOC mentor who just understood my point of view, perspective, life experiences and was able to validate and guide me."
WOC MENTORING OTHER WOC
There is something unique about being mentored by another person who understands the challenges you go through each day. With a WOC mentor on hand to offer their advice and experience, WOC can be comfortable in the knowledge that their mentor not only has the skills and experience to help them think about and navigate their career but is also best placed to share their experience on how to deal with challenging situations (micro-aggressions for example) and can offer insightful help and advice.
The WOCGN mentoring programme has been designed by WOC for WOC. The programme supports and advocates for high-potential global majority women, at any stage in their career.
The programme consists of 6 online or face to face (or both), one-to-one mentoring sessions with expert women of colour mentors and sponsors, over a six month period. Mentors have a wide range of industry, business and personal experiences to help mentees build confidence, grow opportunities and advance their careers.
Mentors are carefully selected for their expertise, commitment and dedication to supporting the next generation of WOC leaders.
