The Cherie Blair Foundation for Women is calling for applications for its next year-long mentorship program, which starts in May and aims to empower women in developing economies.
The Foundation has developed an innovative solution that combines mentoring with technology to offer cross-border support to women entrepreneurs. The program matches women in developing and emerging countries with male and female mentors around the world via an online platform and enables the applicants to spend 12 months working one-on-one to achieve critical business goals.
The Cherie Blair Foundation says the program is suitable for women entrepreneurs at all stages and business sizes. It offers professional development and training opportunities, and grants female entrepreneurs membership of a global community.
