Welcome to ‘Mentoring the WISE (Women Inspired to Shine & Excel)'
‘Mentoring the WISE’ is about every woman who wants to Shine & Excel, irrespective of her age, profession and phase of life.
There is a voice that is beginning to get louder now. And statistics and data are endorsing it too. “Organizations with women on their Senior Leadership teams are delivering better profitability”.
A recent report by McKinsey stated that, there are “No Glass Ceilings but only Leaky Pipelines” for women professionals. At every step upwards in the hierarchy, some women step out, instead of stepping up.
While more than 50% of women comprise the fresh pool that enters the workforce, the percentage constantly declines as we go up the hierarchy, with less than 5 % strength at the top levels.
While some drop out because of motherhood, there are others who find it challenging to balance work and family. While some drop out because of the challenges faced in balancing the work and family, there are others who find organization culture a deterrent to progress.
One survey of such professional women had revealed that most women were not aware of how mentoring could help. And many others did not have the access to a mentor, who could be unbiased and non-judgemental while supporting them.
‘Mentoring the WISE’ is committed to offering on-going support and inspiration to women, to achieve their goals and Shine and Excel.
It has on its board successful and experienced Leaders as Mentors, who truly believe in the mission of ‘Mentoring the WISE’.
