Mentoring is the tool number one of Women Initiative Foundation (WIF)

It provides women entrepreneurs and female leaders in large companies with a privileged relationship with a mentor. This mentor, an experienced woman or man leverages her/his skills and strategic vision to help the mentee with her growth and career.

During this talk, you will hear testimonies from our mentors and mentees and will uncover the benefits of mentoring as they have experienced it.

WIF mentors are women and men who have succeeded in their businesses and careers and are experts in their fields. Each mentoring relationship is tailored to the mentee’s unique needs and objectives.

WIF mentees benefit from the free guidance of a mentor during a year and are also supported in this experience by the Women Initiative Foundation.

This event will also be the opportunity to introduce WIF new inter-company mentoring program, that will be launched in 2019 in the US, to support women through their journey to higher leadership positions.

For Whom?

  • French entrepreneurs who are ready to enter the North American market, and North American entrepreneurs who are ready to enter the EU market.

  • Female leaders in large companies
