2013 Fortune/U.S. State Department International Mentoring Partnership

Fortune 2013 Application Form 

2013 Fortune/U.S. State Department International Mentoring Partnership Program
Inaugurated in 2006, this program is now in its eighth year and has placed 199 women from 46 countries and the West Bank and Gaza in mentoring programs with some of Fortune's Most Powerful Women leaders.  In 2013 the program will host 35 participants. Fortune's Most Powerful Women mentors include CEOs and senior executives from America's most prestigious companies such as Wal-Mart, Time Inc., Goldman Sachs, Xerox, and other well-known, U.S.-based companies.  The program provides participants with unique opportunities to develop their management and business skills while gaining experience in the U.S. business and non-profit environment. 
The 2013 program includes a four-day orientation and leadership and skills training component in Washington, DC, an approximately two-week mentorship assignment, and a two-day communications training and debriefing in New York City.  The DC program will include meetings with USG officials, academics, and representatives of business associations. Following the DC orientation, the participants will travel individually to their company's location, where a Fortune Most Powerful Woman and her team will mentor the participant.  Each participant will have the opportunity to shadow senior executives in their mentoring company and engage in activities specifically designed by the company to  meet the needs and interests of the participant.  The final component will be a two-day debriefing in New York City, where participants will receive communication training, evaluate their mentorship experiences, and develop follow-up activities.  This program supports the Department of State's Policy Guidance on Promoting Gender Equality to Achieve our Foreign Policy Objectives and is a concrete action that posts can take to address one of the four main barriers inhibiting women's economic participation, which is women's leadership. It also supports commitments made during regional economic and trade forums such as the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the Summit of the Americas, Forum for the Future, etc.
This project is a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of State and Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit and is jointly funded.  The State Department’s Office of Citizen Exchanges will cover per diem for the Washington, DC, and New York program and domestic airfare to and from the mentoring sites.  The mentoring companies will contribute international airfare, lodging, and per diem for their mentees during the mentoring portion of the program.
