The WMW walk is an annual event that will be held in 15 countries around the world including Kenya, on 29th November 2008.. It is an initiative of the Vital Voices-Fortune 500 Mentorship programme alumni around the world. It is an exciting opportunity for you to pay it forward.
Mentorship is an effective avenue to build a community of empowered women living lives worth emulating. On a warm Saturday morning, you will be paired up with a young woman aged between 21 and 30. The two of you will enjoy a leisurely stroll for 1.5 to 2 kilometers as you impart wisdom and experience in the areas of leadership, character and social etiquette. The event will take a maximum of 4 hours from 7am-11am.
The walk has so far attracted over 150 executives and professional women and 150 mentees.The initiative is modelled against the Fortune 500/US State Department-in-conjunction with Vital Voices International Women Leaders Mentoring Partnership, which selects and places extraordinary entrepreneurs and business leaders from emerging markets with Fortune 500’s most accomplished women in the business world.
Thank you for taking up this opportunity to “paying it forward”. Those who travel the road of life best are the ones who make it better for those who will follow.
