Guidebook for Mentoring Young Women in Europe

The guidebook at a glance

Equal treatment, participation and access to opportunities for women in the work place and in decision-making processes at all levels is not a reality today. Mentoring has proved to be an effective tool in fostering empowerment and driving forward gender equality. Empowerment is key to achieving equality and professional well-being.

This Guidebook, developed in cooperation between Valetudine and Leadarise, is a free online source, a tool to be used to set up mentoring projects or structured mentoring relationships.

In drawing upon established projects, programs and approaches, it gathers existing knowledge, puts it in relation and processes information in a user-friendly manner. It covers every aspect of setting up a mentoring project or relationship in chronological order, dedicating a separate chapter to each step in the process and closing with a checklist outlining the key factors to be considered at each stage.

More the 70-people attended the launch event on 12/12/2012, featuring guest speakers from the publications contributors including opening statements by Magdalena Kurz and Leadarise co-funder Laura Westring, followed by statements from the «European Women’s Lobby», «WoMentor», «WAGGGS» and the «Danish Centre for Information on Gender, Equality and Diversity». The event also marked the one year anniversary of the International Young Women Partnership, the Network pioneering Leadarise.
