Would you like to become a mentor for the Women Leading The Way Network?
REN would love to hear from female leaders who would like to become mentors to support the professional development of other women who may be facing barriers to their career progression. The commitment for mentors would a minimum of one hour each month and mentors will be matched to a mentee needing support on a particular issue/topic with the outcome of building the mentee’s confidence and resilience and help them develop their skills to become future leaders.
Please get in touch if you are interested in becoming a mentor! firstname.lastname@example.org
