Why mentor a woman? Well, there are many reasons, but I want to share 3 compelling aspects that move most of our mentors.
Passion is infectious.
I often hear our mentors and even donors finding EWI’s passion for social change real and infectious. It’s true that once you meet our women entrepreneurs and experience the passion behind their work, you too will catch the bug and be transformed. We’re in the business of changing lives, but doing this without passion we wouldn’t be the same organization.
Once empowered, women give back.
It’s truly remarkable to see our immigrant or low-income women students struggling to recover from difficult life circumstances, yet working on business models that aim at social change. Income or profit is important for women, but what is most important is the change these women want to see in their communities. And their business enables them to do just that.
Mentoring is inspiring and rewarding.
We all want to feel good about being of help to someone in need. We love to support and invest in people who passionately believe in what they do. We love champions, and being part of their journeys is as rewarding as seeing them reaching the final destination.
Got time to change a life? We have an opportunity for you. Email Marga at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I promise you too will be inspired and rewarded!
Onward and Upward!
