Nearly 50% of women fall off the work force between the junior to middle management levels across the board and the reasons are manifold. To address this ‘Leaky Pipeline,’ CII IWN decided to use the platform to create a first of its kind mentoring network for students and young professionals.
CII WR IWN unveiled an ambitious program ‘100 Hours of Change’ – as an attempt to create the biggest pool of women mentors who can help students and other women rise to their full potential in their careers.
100 HOC is an ambitious project where the Network link up women who have had the access to education and financial independence with those who are just venturing out and want to contribute. The idea is to help create real role models who can bring about positive change where it is required most. Senior and mid-level women (IWN mentors) will give 1 hour of time every month to mentor - be it students, working women or those who want to come back into the work place. IWN mentors will act as ambassadors and help women take informed decisions.
