The Mentoring Programme is made possible through collaboration with partner organisations and the support of individuals, private sector partners, trusts, institutions, foundations and others who give their time, expertise and funding to ensure that we can continue our work. Without the help of our committed donors, partners and mentors, we could not reach as many women entrepreneurs as we do. We are always seeking to build relationships with organisations that share the aims and values of the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women. For more information please contact Allison Kahn, Mentoring Programme Director.
Get involved as a mentor partner
The Mentoring Women in Business Programme works in partnership with businesses, who nominate exceptional male and female staff members to serve as mentors to these women entrepreneurs. These partners play a vital role in helping the Foundation enable women in emerging economies to gain economic independence and have a more influential voice in their communities. Many corporations embed the mentoring scheme into their leadership, CSR and global citizenship programmes. In addition to the impact this has on women in developing and emerging countries, it also provides a tremendous learning and growth opportunity for the employees who serve as mentors, which feeds back into and inspires their work at the company. Contact us for more information.
Get involved as a mentee partner
The Mentoring Women in Business Programme partners with local organisations who have an intimate knowledge of the needs of women entrepreneurs in their specific country. These local organisations select women entrepreneurs from their programmes who they think could benefit from the mentoring scheme and nominate them to become mentees. Cross-border mentoring provides learning and capacity building opportunities for the women they work with and a unique offering for their organisations. This often serves as a follow-on to their trainings and a means to offer additional support after their programmes end. Contact us for more information.
