Mentoring is recognized as a cost-effective and impactful way to prepare future business leaders.

Research from McKinsey, Catalyst, and PWN confirms that mentoring is a key ingredient to professional progress up the leadership pipeline.

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.

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.

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."
