Mentoring Women Leaders From Developing Countries

Posted on Fri, May, 07, 2010

Just last week, many powerful women from a variety of Fortune 500 Companies including American Express, Google, Yahoo, Wells Fargo, Xerox, and Time Warner met with 33 young women leaders from 25 developing countries.  Their mission for the next three weeks is to have each young woman paired up with a distinguished women mentor from a Fortune 500 Company that is involved in Fortune’s MPWomen community.  The Fortune MPWomen community is made up of women executives who mentor and empower women all over the globe.  Upon completion of the mentoring program in the US, the majority of these young leaders return to their own countries to share their experiences and also to create their own mentoring programs in hopes to further educate their growing population of women leaders.  If these young leaders can go back to their countries and start a program, shouldn’t you start one too?
