Mentoring is an effective and increasingly popular way for private sector companies to advance the Women’s Empowerment Principle 4, promote women’s training and professional development, and drive positive organizational culture change. This guide is based on international best practices and the practical experiences of UN Women.
It is designed to assist WEPs signatories with developing and rolling out a customized mentoring programme within their organizations.
Companies are choosing mentoring programmes since they:
1. Provide staff with an informal opportunity for education and learning.
2. Increase staff morale and job satisfaction, thereby reducing turnover.
3. Enable companies to transfer leadership and management skills to newer staff.
4. Save time when problem-solving and when taking on staff, and they keep staff focused on project oriented tasks.
