"Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction." John C. Crosby, American politician
Perhaps more than any other force in your career, mentors can accelerate you.
The examples are many: Sheryl Sandberg had Larry Summers, Susan Rice had Barack Obama, Kevin Spacey had Jack Lemmon.
Mentoring is the key for developing and sustaining a satisfying professional career. Mentoring enables each of us to grow, learn, transform, and accomplish goals. Whether you are the mentor or the mentee, mentoring helps build a dynamic community while ensuring the success of each individual as she achieves personal and professional career goals.
The PWN Paris Mentoring Program mission is to increase and enhance our members' professional success and satisfaction. We help our network members-mentees to define their professional goals. By pairing them with mentors who can offer the advice, experience, and knowledge that their particular challenges require, the Mentoring Program aims to increase mentees' chances of achieving these goals.
