This week, women leaders from 11 countries began the 15th annual Fortune-U.S. Department of State Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership. The 13 participants will spend a month working virtually with executives from the Fortune Most Powerful Women community across the United States to enhance their business and leadership skills. The partnership leverages the expertise of American leaders in the public and private sectors to support and advance women’s economic empowerment.
This year’s class of emerging leader mentees includes women from Egypt, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Morocco, Pakistan, South Africa, Ukraine, Uganda, and Vietnam. Through the program, they will strengthen their skills and networks to accelerate positive change in their communities. Over 338 alumnae of this program have worked with mentors from U.S. companies such as Guardian Life Insurance, Johnson & Johnson, and Accenture.
The Fortune-U.S. Department of State Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership is a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of State, Fortune’s Most Powerful Women, and the Vital Voices Global Partnership.
