Women Mentors Partnership Program Descends On State Department

 



 

 

The U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, in partnership with FORTUNE's Most Powerful Women and Vital Voices Global Partnership, have joined together for the fifth FORTUNE/State Department Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership, taking place April 26 – May 20, 2010. This innovative public-private partnership connects over fifty of America’s senior women executives from more than thirty companies with emerging women leaders from around the world. The program has more than doubled in size since its inception in 2006. This year thirty-three emerging women leaders from Afghanistan, Argentina, Brazil, China, Egypt, Ghana, Haiti, India, Jordan, Kenya, Kyrgyz Republic, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestinian Territories, Russia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, and Zimbabwe will be mentored by participants of the FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Summit. 

 

Among this year’s mentors are: Ann S. Moore, Chairman and CEO at Time Inc.; Susan Chambers, Executive Vice President in the Global People Division at Wal-Mart Stores; Margaret Mattix, Suzanne McCarron, and Terri Fariello, all in senior positions at ExxonMobil Corp.; and Marissa Mayer, Vice President of Search Products and User Experience at Google Inc. 

 

The program will open with a three-day orientation session in Washington, DC, where the participants will meet with senior women in government, academia, and business, including Maria Otero, Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs; Rose Gottemoeller, Assistant Secretary of State for Verification, Compliance and Implementation; Anne-Marie Slaughter, Director of Policy Planning; and Melanne Verveer, Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues. 
The second phase of the program pairs each of the international participants with one or more of FORTUNE's Most Powerful Women Leaders. For three weeks, American and international participants work together in mentoring relationships to share the skills and experiences necessary for strengthening women’s leadership. The program will conclude with a two-day debriefing in New York City, where participants attend workshops on media and communications strategies and meet with senior executives from New York-based companies. 

FORTUNE's Most Powerful Women Leaders share their time, talent and expertise in business with the next generation of international women leaders. The professional and personal ties that grow out of the mentoring relationships last well beyond the month-long program and enable the international participants to bring positive change to their companies and communities.
