Cherie Blair Foundation for Women (Lagos-Nigeria) is seeking for a Volunteer mentor to a woman entrepreneur in a developing market.
By giving just two hours a month, you could support a pioneering women entrepreneur in a developing or emerging country as she builds her business, gains economic independence and has a more influential voice in her community. The Cherie Blair Foundation’s Mentoring Women in Business Programme is an innovative scheme that combines mentoring with technology to support women entrepreneurs in over 55 countries. Online mentoring helps to accelerate the strides these women are making and take their businesses, confidence and skills to the next level. Over the course of a year, you’ll meet with your mentee online two hours a month to work on goals that are tailored to her needs and your expertise and interests. There are participants from diverse sectors and on board, so chances are there is a mentee who could benefit from your expertise and background. The Foundation has groups starting every spring and autumn, with application deadlines in March and September. We invite you to join this distinctive programme and become a mentor. Mentors can be both men and women. They need just 7+ years of experiences, two hours a month and a passion for supporting a woman entrepreneur. From rejuvenating interest in your own work, using your business skills in a new way, joining a vibrant community of accomplished entrepreneurs and professionals, making new contacts and supporting your mentee as she makes inimitable strides, mentoring presents a tremendous learning and growth opportunity.
