Mentoring Helps Build Strong Networks and Advance Careers
Research shows that the best indicator of a woman’s success is her network. To this end, CWB seeks to help women in all stages of their careers build their professional network, share ideas and experiences, and gain insight on their personal and professional goals.
One of the best ways to build a network and gain insight on one's goals is to have a mentor or be a mentor.
Young professionals find mentoring helpful in learning what options are available to them and how to navigate career advancement. And accomplished women find that mentoring is rewarding – and an opportunity for continued learning.
According to the Women’s Initiative Fellowship Program (WIFP) of the George W. Bush Institute, a woman with a strong network is better able to prosper in her field and multiply her influence. Mentoring helps build those strong networks.
