WHY BECOME A cMEO MENTOR on INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2020?
Mentoring young people can change lives and career trajectories. Becoming a girledworld CmeO mentor allows you to create impact, share your abundant knowledge and experience and cultivate your leadership skills by developing others.
The time commitment is just ONE DAY and we’ll do all the legwork to match a mentee (aged 15-18 years) to you. (NOTE: Mentees can join you for a Breakfast/Lunch/Evening event, the whole day, or specific industry functions the week of International Women’s Day 2020.)
Mentorship provides real-time, real-world learning opportunities for high school girls and enables them to connect with women across industries who can guide them, help them define their career and life goals and realise their potential.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SO WHAT’S INVOLVED EXACTLY? AND WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
The CmeO role is about guiding and helping young women to achieve their goals and realise their potential. You’ll help them understand the skills required for your day to day work, open their eyes to your industry and what the real world of work looks like, and involve them in a day in your life to give them access to critical real-world learning so they can make informed decisions about their future careers. There is no pre-work required. You just have to have generosity of knowledge, and a willingness to share one work day (or an International Women’s Day 2020 event) with a 15-18-year-old girl by your side!
I’m KINDA BUSY! WHAT IS THE TOTAL TIME COMMITMENT?
We know your time is precious. Therefore we have designed the 2020 CmeO program to be high impact and easy to commit to.
The CmeO pledge requires you to commit to ONE DAY in 2020 (week of International Women’s Day March 8, 2020) where you agree to host ONE secondary school girl in your workplace, and let her ‘shadow’ you for the day - learning on the job, and gaining a rare window into the real world of work.
girledworld will provide the matching service based on individual student’s industry interest area and experience (we connect with 1000’s of students across Australia) and will connect you through girledworld’s online platform.
Prior to the mentorship, we will also provide you with useful tips for how to make the most of your day together! Simple as that!
Small commitment, big impact in the life (and future career pathway) of a teenage girl!
