EPWN career mentoring programme

From personal development to professional advancement, the European Professional Women's Network Zug & Zurich Mentoring Programme could help you take your career to the next level.

Now in its 2nd year, the EPWN Zug & Zurich Mentoring Programme is once again open to members hoping to move closer to achieving their career goals. Whether you want to learn how to write a business plan that can turn around the results of your company or make vital contacts to reach the next step in your career, the Mentoring Programme can help by partnering you with a mentor who has relevant experience. And all it takes is as little as an hour each month.Research has shown mentoring to make a significant difference to the professional advancement of a mentee, by allowing them to learn from shared knowledge and skills. As such, and in keeping with the EPWN's mission to advance women in leadership, the Mentoring Programme aims to offer mentees ownership of personal and professional development in an international environment.

As EPWN Zug & Zurich Mentoring Programme Director Margherita Brodbeck Roth explains: “Previous participants of the EPWN programme have been able to achieve important goals, including setting up a plan for continued education, attaining support from their manager to pursue their plans, and making decisions that have helped them move forward in their career.”

Mentors and mentees are advised to meet for at least an hour each month, to allow for a mutually beneficial relationship. Mentors, who all hail from the EPWN's international network and have the passion to enable other members to grow, can expect to develop their leadership experience in an international setting, broaden the scope of their CV, and gain visibility.

As mentor Borke Thill, Senior Personnel Developer at Siemens AG Schweiz, says: “Seeing my mentees grow and shine makes me not only proud to be part of their journey, but also helps me to take a closer look at certain areas of my own leadership skills. Mentoring is from my point of view much more powerful than we think. Especially the mix of having mentors not only within the company you work for but also outside of it can be a key to successful development for the mentee.”

Best of all, participation for EPWN members as a mentor or a mentee is completely free of charge.
