  • Mentoring Program

    PWN Copenhagen is offering a highly regarded Mentoring Program to its members every year starting in October. By becoming a member of our network, you are eligible to apply for the program.

    Mentoring is recognized as a cost-effective and impactful way to prepare future business leaders. Women who achieve professional success often state that mentoring relationships during their professional journey—both formal and informal—are instrumental to that success. Research from McKinsey, Catalyst, and PWN confirms that mentoring is a key ingredient to professional progress up the leadership pipeline.


    What is mentoring?

    Mentoring is a relationship between an expert (mentor) and another person willing to learn from the expert's experience (mentee), therefore the mentor helps the mentee to achieve her development goals by sharing his/her personal knowledge and reflecting together.


    Who can be a mentee in PWN Copenhagen Program?

    The requirement to join the program is membership of PWN Copenhagen.

    Hence, if you want to apply to the program you have to register for PWN and pay the yearly membership fee of DKK 750. A PWN mentee can be anyone who strives for professional or personal development.

    The program fee is DKK 500.


    PLEASE NOTE: your application for the program will be considered only after payment has been received.


    As a mentee you get

    • In-person group coaching on your goal formulation at the beginning of the program
    • A minimum of 5 individual sessions with your mentor over 6 months
    • 2-3 additional in-person or virtual group sessions during the program
    • A network of other mentees, with the opportunity to support each other

    PLEASE NOTE: as of now, the plan is to host the fall program 2020 fully virtual in context of Covid-19 restrictions. This might change while the program is in progress.


    Who are the Mentors?

    We invite experienced professionals - both men and women - to serve in the role of a mentor and share their knowledge for the benefit of professional women. Past and current mentors from the PWN Copenhagen Mentoring Program have had a variety of professional backgrounds and provided mentoring on many topics - including leadership, work-life balance, entrepreneurship, presentation skills, self-development, wholehearted professional living, and personal fulfillment.  Mentors commit to 5 sessions of mentoring over the duration of 6 months, more sessions can be agreed upon mutually by each pair individually. Mentors also receive training and support from the VP Mentoring during the program and a certified coach who runs the training workshop. Mentors are welcome to participate without PWN Copenhagen membership.


    How does mentoring happen?

    The mentoring can take place in person or over the phone/Skype, according to the mutual agreement between the mentor and mentee. Details of mentoring discussions are confidential.



     Feedback from a repeat Mentor:

    "I am always amazed at learning about another person, their drivers, perspectives and viewpoints. My mentoring drive comes from sharing a new perspective and potentially helping someone else to understand themselves better and to make sustainable steps toward change. This was again a fulfilling session, as I can visibly see the joy and change in my mentee."
