Applications for 2020/21 are open until March 6, 2020. The full list of mentoring categories can be found here. What’s stopping you?

The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women

Forbes announced their list of 100 female trailblazers, women who are claiming leadership positions, taking global action and making a positive difference to the world. These women have authority, they’re standing up and speaking up in a world where women’s voices need to be heard (our Queen E proudly takes the #40 spot).

If you would like to apply for our 2020/21 programme, we recommend reading the tips from current mentee, Rachael Kenny:
– Spend time on your application, don’t rush it. – – Be open about your struggles and your motivations for applying.
– Really think about what you want out of the programme, where do you see it taking you in 12 months.
