The Concept

The 2010 Mentoring Walk will be 10-day programme during which participants will receive leadership training along with institutional visits/meetings with top level women in government, business and NGO’s. These accomplished women will share their experiences as well as the challenges and rewards of their portfolios and lives with the younger ones.  They will share their time, talent and expertise in business with the next generation of women business leaders.

The program will give the mentees a better understanding of how business, public sector and nongovernmental organizations operate.  Interacting with these women leaders will give them greater insight and inspiration to strive higher to play a role in the development of their people, community and nation.   The details of structure and style will be left to the discretion of mentor/mentee team to decide.

High-profile women leaders from a variety of professions will be paired with younger women who share similar passions and dreams of breaking into their fields of expertise or interest. It will help 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 with other younger women.

Mentoring Walk 2009

For science, music, sport, etc, Europe uses the same vocabulary. The European languages are members of the same family. Their separate existence is a myth. The languages only differ in their grammar, their pronunciation and their most common words. as a skeptical Cambridge friend of mine told me what Occidental is. Their separate existence is a myth

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.
