Mentoring Walk 2009

27th & 28th February 2009

High-profile women leaders from a variety of professions were mobilized to walk and talk with younger women who share their passion and dream of breaking into their fields of expertise. It helped create opportunities for younger women to jump-start their careers, with the intent that they may evolve or lay the groundwork for longer-term, meaningful associations.

The Walk targeted 40 women to mentor 40 young ladies between the ages of 18 and 30 starting with an orientation session for mentors and mentees on 27th February, and a walk on 28th February 2009 at Rufus Green Parks.  Each mentor was paired up with a mentee. The two walked together for a maximum of 2 hours as the mentor shared experiences in the areas of career, personal and social development, while the mentee asked questions where required.

The walk was followed by panel discussions where the participants shared their various experiences and discussed issues relevant to the women – professional, health, social and personal.

Thanks to Mentoring Women Ghana, during my shadow week I had the opportunity to sit on an interview panel with my mentor (Angela Dedo Kofi), and the mock interview with Unilever helped me to know presentation is key.
