"I have learned an incredible amount about strength, resilience, how different communities function, and how to be a better leader myself."

The Mentor in You

Our Mentors are professionals from all around the world and work in any sector. They share our vision of a future where half of all leadership positions are held by women.

 

You don’t have to be at the peak of your career, have three diplomas, or have life figured out to be a good mentor. What’s more important is your ability to listen, encourage, ask thoughtful questions, and reflect with your Rising Star. You are a confidante, a guide, and most importantly, an invaluable pillar of support to a young woman’s journey to lead the change.

Your Role as Mentor

As a Wedu Mentor, you commit to:

 

  • Meeting online at least twice per month, via Skype or other platform – this means that you and your mentee can be based anywhere in the world;
  • Dedicating 3 to 6 hours every month, for a minimum of 8 months – this fosters a long-term meaningful relationship with the achievement of her short and long-term goals in mind;
  • Utilising our Leadership Development curriculum, resources, and team support to discuss valuable leadership topics and opportunities for growth with your mentee; and
  • Providing your mentee with the guidance to think critically about her ideas and goals, while sharing your own experience and learnings along the way.
