What is the PWN Stavanger Mentoring Program?
Mentoring is recognized as an impactful way to prepare future business leaders. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to advance your career!
Mentoring is a voluntary developmental partnership, through which a person with relevant experience (the mentor) shares skills and experience to support someone else (the mentee) in achieving career objectives.
It is not “training”, but rather the construction of a trusting relationship that helps you navigate your working life.
Mentoring plays a critical role in the progression of women professionals in all sectors. The lack of mentoring, exclusion from networks, and absence of women role models are cited as key barriers to career advancement for women.
In the PWN Stavanger Mentoring Program, the emphasis is on professional development. Mentors are matched with mentees to support specific career or business-related goals. Mentoring relationships are sustained over a period of 6 months. Meetings take place monthly and – depending on the preferences of mentors and mentees – they can be in person or remotely.
Who will benefit?
Mentoring provides a huge benefit to the Mentee, the person who is being mentored, by obtaining a fresh perspective on their career status, aspirations & goals from their Mentor. But did you know that mentoring also provides a significant benefit to the Mentor as well?
Many Mentors have commented that their contribution as a Mentor also provided themselves with a positive new way of looking at their own career path, as well as an incentive to reflect on where they themselves were going and how that aligned with their own aspirations & goals.
It’s really a “win-win” exchange between Mentee & Mentor.
What PWN Stavanger offers to their members?
PWN Stavanger provides an effective mentoring program to ensure that you get the most out of your mentoring experience. We will help our members to build a woman to woman trustful relationship. It allows women to share issues related to their professional development and well-being.
In order to facilitate the best match for both the mentors and the mentees, PWN Stavanger will publish brief profiles of all of the mentors so that the mentees are able to review them on the PWN Norway website. The mentees will have the opportunity to provide a list of preferences regarding their mentor partner. Next, the PWN Stavanger Mentoring Team will match the pairs, taking into consideration the preferences of the mentors and mentees.
