• Mentoring

    What is mentoring?

    Mentoring is recognised as a cost-effective and impactful way to prepare future business leaders. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to advance your career!


    Mentoring is a voluntary developmental partnership, through which a person with relevant experience (the mentor) shares skills and experience to support someone else (the mentee) in achieving career objectives.

    It is not “training”, but rather the construction of a trusting relationship that helps you navigate your working life.

    Mentoring plays a critical role in the progression of women professionals in all sectors. The lack of mentoring, exclusion from networks, and absence of women role models are cited as key barriers to career advancement for women.


    In the PWN Rome Mentoring Program, the emphasis is on professional development. Mentors are matched with mentees to support specific career or business-related goals. Mentoring relationships are sustained over a period of 6 months. Meetings take place monthly and – depending on the preferences of mentors and mentees – they can be in person or remotely.


    Who will benefit?

    Mentoring provides a huge benefit to the Mentee, the person who is being mentored, by obtaining a fresh perspective on their career status, aspirations & goals from their Mentor.

    But did you know that mentoring also provides a significant benefit to the Mentor as well?

    Many Mentors have commented that their contribution as a Mentor also provided themselves with a positive new way of looking at their own career path, as well as an incentive to reflect on where they themselves were going and how that aligned with their own aspirations & goals.


    It’s really a “win-win” exchange between Mentee & Mentor.


    Our traditional 1 to 1 mentoring will be available for max 40 couples of members – we will accept up to 40 mentor candidates (taking into consideration PWN Rome membership seniority). In order to facilitate both mentors and mentees with the best match, PWN Rome will organize a Speed Dating Event to offer the opportunity for mentors and mentees to meet before the final match is decided, to share motivations/goals/expectations and to provide a list of preferences regarding their mentoring partner.

    What PWN Rome offers to their members?

    PWN Rome provides an effective mentoring program organization to ensure that you get the most out of your mentoring experience. You can participate to a traditional 1-to-1 mentoring or to International Mentoring for the 2023 edition.


    The Mentoring Program is:


    Being in different organizations can offer a wider and unbiased perspective to participants. Not having hierarchical implications allows both mentors and mentees to be open and sincere.



    Our traditional 1 to 1 mentoring will be available for max 40 couples of members – we will accept up to 40 mentor candidates (taking into consideration PWN Rome membership seniority).

    PWN Rome Mentoring Team will match the couples, taking into consideration membership seniority and the preferences of mentor/mentee matching. New applicants to the program will be favoured.

    In the matching activity, we will recognize a priority to mentees who will have participated in Speed Dating Event (if you cannot attend, PWN Rome does not ensure matching).

  • Balance Ladership

    Balanced leadership


    Balanced leadership is no longer simply the 'right' thing to do.


    Forward thinking companies and professionals know that putting balanced leadership at the heart of their business strategies will lead to sustainable growth and profits. 

    Sign The Manifesto! 

    If you want to demonstrate your commitment to really advancing gender balanced leadership at work and in society in general, check out our PWN Global MANIFESTO 2021.


    With PWN Rome you can access the latest trends and global thinking on balanced leadership, by enrolling in our Program.


    Women often find that in the effort to advance they have developed only a part of what they are, leaving behind vital aspects of themselves. In the midst of substantial results, women often report feeling emptied, tired or invisible.


    Completeness and balance in ourselves are crucial to face the challenges of a modern world and be successful.

    -  Workshop will be activated on demand
