Mentor Program Women Lead

A new initiative by Women For Leaders and The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce, New York with a joint mission to help female professionals achieve their best through knowledge and experience sharing and support.

Women Lead is an exciting, high level and intense mentorship program for women with a career in international business.

The yearlong program features five interactive events where mentors and mentees will meet in group in addition to the individual mentor sessions to help develop their business network, professional skills and tools, and to gain insight and inspiration around modern leadership best practices – all with the goal of excelling in the fast paced and ever-changing world and professional arena we now live and work in.

Mentors and Mentees will meet for five group meet-ups and deep dives in to relevant and important topics led by industry and content leaders, and in between will meet and connect on a regular one-on-one basis for sparring, development and reflection. The mentorship program ends with a festive diploma and closing dinner.
