Organized by outstanding local leaders who are key members of the Vital Voices Global Leadership Network, the annual Mentoring Walks bring together established women leaders and emerging women leaders to walk together in their community. As they walk, they discuss their professional challenges and successes and establish a mentoring relationship in which the seasoned leader guides, advises and supports her peer.
The event is happening simultaneously in 180 locations around the world and on March 9th from 8 am - 11 am in the UAE. The UAE chapter will be taking place on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
One of the event’s objectives is to empower women in the Middle East through education. Around 150 participants who are influential and high profile women leaders in the business community will walk together as mentors and mentees to discuss their challenges and opportunities of entrepreneurship in the region.
