At She Shares we believe strongly in nurturing the next generation of women leaders. That’s why She Shares is also a mentoring and networking opportunity for young women. She Shares works closely with our nonprofit partner, the California Center for Civic Participation, on the mentorship program. The California Center has helped thousands of young people become active players in the public policies affecting their communities, cities, and states. She Shares highly values our mentorship program as a way to cultivate successful and meaningful professional experiences for the next generation.
This year long mentorship program pairs young women with professional Sacramento women at the top of their careers. The pairs meet at each She Shares event during the year where they will also have an opportunity to talk with the featured speaker. Mentees will also be engaged between events at workshops hosted by sponsors and community leaders on topics relevant to professional development. These will be open to additional young women, allowing the program to reach beyond just those participating as mentees.
She Shares: Mentoring Future Leaders Program is a part of She Shares: Conversations with Women Leaders, a conversation series produced for California women, by California women. She Shares features trailblazing leaders who have created a lasting impact for women in California and beyond.
