Global women leaders from 13 countries arrived in the United States this week for the Fortune-U.S. Department of State Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership. The 16 participants will spend a month engaging in skills trainings, panel discussions, networking events, and mentorships with executives from the Fortune Most Powerful Women community. This partnership leverages the expertise of American leaders in the public and private sectors to support women’s economic empowerment.
The United States is a leader in championing gender equality. Now in its 13th year, this program includes over 300 alumnae who have worked with mentors from America’s most prestigious companies, such as Goldman Sachs, Johnson and Johnson, IBM, and Accenture. This year’s class of emerging-leader mentees includes women from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Palestinian Territories, Kenya, Macedonia, Mongolia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia, and Vietnam.
The program is a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of State, Fortune Most Powerful Women, and Vital Voices Global Partnership. For press inquiries, contact the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at ECA-Press@state.gov. Follow #FortuneMPW on social media for updates.
