Benefits for Mentors: Developing Leadership Skills
Mentors have the chance to develop their leadership skills. Thanks to the support of the Mentoring Coordination Team, they will experience a program that also challenges them to reflect on their professional career and aspirations. It is a chance to reflect on their own practices and challenges.
Mentors will encourage action, commitment and motivation. At the same time, they will provide and receive continuous feedback. Participating as a Mentor with the PWN Vienna Mentoring Program also allows them access to the PWN network through its global and local City Networks, and gives them visibility through its media channels, including LinkedIn and the online magazine, Connect.
Building Mentoring Competency
To further increase benefits for Mentors and Mentees, PWN Vienna strives to continually increase the strength of its program. In 2023/24 we will support our Mentors by:
