The Vital Voices and Bank of America Partnership will bring 22 Global Ambassadors and Mentees to Paris this November
October 2019 – Vital Voices is excited to welcome the Global Ambassadors and mentees who will join us for the 20th iteration of the Global Ambassadors Program in Paris next month.
The Global Ambassadors Program, a Vital Voices and Bank of America partnership, is designed to provide mentoring opportunities for emerging women leaders in business and social enterprise. This effort builds on Vital Voices’ 22 years of global experience in training and mentoring women who practice transformative leadership to advance economic development and entrepreneurship, human rights and political participation in their communities.
In 2012, Vital Voices and Bank of America developed this signature partnership to accelerate women’s leadership and economic empowerment throughout the world. Its work is rooted in a shared history of investing in leadership development, guided by a belief that strong women leaders are vital to healthy, vibrant communities and core to creating economic growth.
The Global Ambassadors Program connects women leaders (mentees) — at a tipping point in their professional, business and leadership paths — with established women executives (Global Ambassadors or mentors) for mentorship. The program convenes multiple times a year with different groups of women leaders around the world.
Those joining us in Paris include:
Both Ambassadors and mentees will participate in an innovative, immersive approach to mentoring, with trainings to build skills in key areas, including leadership, financial management, business strategy and communications. In addition, there will be a personal development workshop and cross-cohort networking throughout the week.
