About Women Who Wow
Almost half-of female founders in startups cited a lack of available mentors or advisers as holding them back (Inc.com) – we want to make sure that Trinity students don’t face this particular barrier.
A mentor can play an important role at any stage in a woman’s career, but it is particularly important in the early stages. From mentorship you gain invaluable expertise, access to a network, support and encouragement, as well as an outsider’s objective perspective on your goals and how best to reach them.
Mentorship works best when you have thought about what would be most useful for you to learn or reflect upon. An event with potential mentees will help to concretise this for all participants through emphasis on everyone’s individual goals for the future, and objectives for the mentorship scheme. This clarity also helps to ensure that you are matched with the correct mentor.
