SWinG Project: Mentors Orienteering session in Paris

The SWinG partners, among which there is Circolo Canottieri Lazio, are aiming at addressing one of the sport pressing challenge. That is of bringing in more diversity in the boardroom. To do so they have been working hard since January this year to develop a concept meant to help close the gender gap.

With the SWinG Mentors Orienteering Session that took place in Paris, on October 4, partners are starting the pilot testing of our concept idea.

Partners gathered 17 -out of the 20- selected mentors at the MEDEF headquarters in Paris. This had been a first step towards the successful implementation of the SWinG mentoring scheme. The day was intentionally built to facilitate the creation of a community of SWinG mentors. It also helped to ensure a common understating of the SWinG mentoring approach and expectations. In addition it was made to learn from and capitalize on the various mentoring experience of the mentors.
