What is Mentorship?

Mentorship is a relationship that provides an avenue for growth and development, primarily for the mentee but often for the mentor too. A good mentor provide encouragement, guidance, coaching, and feedback towards success in your professional life.
“Mentorship is one of the keys to success in business, and can play a major role in a woman’s career path to leadership. Mentors can help you identify and achieve career goals, give you confidence, broaden your knowledge, empower you, and open doors, paving the way to access leadership positions.”
