When you started out, did you ever wish you had someone to help guide and prepare you for a strong career path? Our women's mentoring program is your chance to fulfill that dream for another woman in payments.
By being a mentor, you’ll help guide our future payments leaders. You’ll also gain valuable insights that will help you in your own career growth, while raising your own profile.
Mentors are carefully paired with mentees from around the globe. By acting as a role model and providing guidance to a mentee on relevant career development issues, you’ll have the chance to learn about unspoken challenges facing the next generation of leaders. You’ll also gain exposure to new markets, new perspectives, and new opportunities.
We provide a 60-minute masterclass to kick off each new cohort. Successful mentor/mentee relationships don’t necessarily happen naturally. In this virtual mentorship masterclass led by an experienced leadership coach, you’ll learn how to become the best mentor you can, so you can make the most impact on future women leaders. In the session we’ll review the various roles you bring to your mentoring relationship, from sounding board and thinking partner to advisor and sponsor. We’ll also top up the critical coaching skill of powerful questioning and touch on some of the challenges women face in developing their careers – not from the perspective of needing to fix the women, but from an awareness of how women’s leadership may be experienced differently.
Guidelines for mentors:
- Commitment is to meet with your mentee for one hour, virtually, at least 6 times over the year
- Mentors must have at least 3 of the following:
- 15-20 years’ professional experience
- No more than 3 levels below CEO
- Significant experience at a leadership level
- Prior successful mentoring experience
Registration for Cohort Nine closes on Tuesday, October 26, 2021.
Mentors will receive a 1-year complimentary membership for Women in Payments
