GWPR Empower programme
Empower is an exclusive programme developed by Global Women in PR for a carefully selected group of 25 mid-career women, featuring a combination of cross-border mentoring, learning and profile building.
The 2023 programme will run from July 2023 to June 2024 and 25 of the most successful global female leaders in PR and Communications have signed up to be mentors.
GWPR’s 24-hour global speed mentoring initiative in 2021, involving 300 women on International Women’s Day, served as the springboard for this programme. Many GWPR national groups already run mentoring programmes for PR women in their own countries, but until now, there was no opportunity to be mentored cross-border.
The monthly mentoring sessions will be virtual and involve women from 20 countries worldwide.
The learning element of the EMPOWER programme will involve regular masterclasses given by industry experts on topics such as leadership skills, business management, and career planning. GWPR will also provide opportunities for the mentees to participate in panel discussions, a thought leadership project and international networking.
Regular virtual networking meet-ups for mentees and active social media engagement will help create a sense of community.
The programme’s goal is to continue to grow Empower and create a talent pool of sought-after and empowered global women leaders.
