The Passionate Professional, in partnership with the U.S. Embassy in South Africa and Vital Voices, will be commemorating International Women’s Day by hosting the annual Global Mentoring Walk. This initiative comprises 132 Walks taking place in 61 Countries around the world, and we’re inviting you be a part of this global movement by registering as a Mentee or Mentor.
The Global Mentoring Walk is an opportunity to highlight the importance of women’s leadership, and to accelerate the impact of women leaders through mentoring. Organised by outstanding local leaders who are key members of the Vital Voices Global Leadership Network, the annual Mentoring Walk brings together established women leaders and emerging women leaders to walk together in their community.
As they walk, they discuss their professional challenges and successes and establish a mentoring relationship in which the seasoned leader guides, advises and support her peer. The benefits of women’s mentorship are numerous. It establishes camaraderie, creates gender-friendly environments, promotes a stronger environment for women’s success, and expands horizons for further personal growth as women explore innovative leadership strategies.
Vital Voices is the leading non-governmental organization (NGO) that identifies, trains and empowers emerging women leaders and social entrepreneurs around the globe, enabling them to create a better world. Vital Voices believes that mentoring is a critical activity in empowering women to succeed as leaders and creating opportunities for women on a local scale.
