Mentoring Women’s Network

Pass the Torch for Women Campaign

National Launch Event

Women supporting women professionally through mentoring programs has been found to promote career growth not only for the mentee, but for the mentor as well. Committed to facilitating these beneficial relationships, Mentoring Women’s Network has taken on the challenge to create the world’s largest and most effective women’s mentoring program. In an effort to make mentoring services available to any woman who wants them, the Foundation will officially launch an awareness and fundraising campaign, Pass the Torch for Women, at a luncheon on August 14, 2014 at the Ivy Tech Corporate College & Culinary Center.

During the Pass the Torch for Women Campaign, one million women and men will Take the Pledge, declaring their desire to make an impact by mentoring, inspiring, and empowering women.  Attendees may participate in an interactive networking workshop and be inspired by an array of dynamic speakers. They will also learn more about the Pass the Torch for Women campaign and Mentoring Women’s Network.
