Voices of Our Future 2013 Vision Mentors

World Pulse has a designed a unique mentoring framework for Voices of Our Future! Building on the generous support and best practices of the Empowerment Institute, World Pulse worked with Ellen Wingard to design a methodology that is focused on creating a transformational partnership that champions, nurtures, catalyzes, challenges and supports Correspondents to achieve their visions for change. We are redefining the traditional notion of mentoring from "power bestowed" to "power from within" because we believe that each of us has what it takes to achieve our dreams within us. Thank you to all the professional women who are dedicating their time and passion to helping the next generation of grassroots women leaders succeed!
