PWN Mentoring Program 2022/23 - Kick-off
The Mentoring Program 2022/23 has been officially kicked off in October. Participants in the PWN Mentoring Program have signed up to achieve their goals, whether getting a promotion, making a career change or starting a business. Mentoring is important at every stage of a person’s career, whether they are just starting out or are a CEO, and PWN is committed to helping both young and experienced professionals alike. Thank you Ani and Viktorija for presenting this year's matches (35 mentors and 55 mentees).

How the Mentoring Program works
Those wishing to be either a Mentor or a Mentee fill out an application form describing the goals they wish to achieve during the program, their background and their experience. Mentoring topics include personal development such as improving communication skills and self-expression, work-life balance, professional development, management and leadership, entrepreneurship and career development. Each applicant is interviewed by the Mentoring Coordination Team in order to get a better understanding of their expectations and preferences and to ensure proper matching between Mentors and Mentees. Our matching system has a satisfaction rate of the matching higher than 85%.
The program runs from October to June, with each mentoring pair or small group meeting on a regular basis (either in person or remotely). The Mentoring Coordination Team provides support throughout the process.
