Why Mentorship Matters

The act of mentoring stretches back thousands of years. In Ancient Greece for example, Socrates mentored Plato, who later mentored Aristotle. In more recent times, prominent mentor - mentee relationships include those change-makers such as Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou and Oprah Winfrey, and Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg. At Women Mentor Association, it is our belief that by investing in the next generation of women we are helping to shape the architects of a better tomorrow. Mentoring can open doors, inspire, support and encourage people to realise their potential and to achieve their dreams. Mentors can make a profound difference in the lives of their mentee - and in turn, strengthen our communities, economy, and drive social change.

What Mentorship Provides

Mentors can offer valuable insight into what it takes to get ahead. They can be your guide and "sounding board" for ideas.

They can help you identify the skills and expertise you need to succeed. They may teach you what you need to know, or advise you

Improve your communication skills

Just like your mentor, you may also learn to communicate more effectively, which can further help you at work.

Build your network

Your mentor can offer an opportunity to expand your existing network of personal and professional contacts..

Advance your career

A mentor helps you stay focused and on track in your career through advice, skills development, networking, and so on.
