TechWomen mentorships begin!

First day at Microsoft

The 2012 TechWomen Emerging Leaders began their project-based mentorships at host companies on Monday, September 10.

This year, thirty-one companies are hosting the forty-one women at their site. In addition to their host companies, cultural mentors represent an additional thirty-one companies.  “We’re excited to welcome the TechWomen program to Salesforce today. Can’t wait to meet our future leaders!” tweeted salesforce.com.

The TechWomen are being exposed to unique experiences. One said, “Yesterday I met with Maya Strelar-Migotti, CEO of Ericsson’s IP and Broadband Development Unit. I was honored that she made the time to meet me and hear more about me, my country, and the project I will work on. She is a professional, strong woman, yet so nice and calm. She even gave me a book and wrote me her own personal message. This was the highlight of my day!”

The mentorships last approximately three-weeks and offer a myriad of opportunities to the participants, including meeting with highly influential people at their host companies. “A big thanks to my professional mentor. I had an interesting day. I’m so happy for the lovely evening and very [much] appreciated [the opportunity],” wrote another Emerging Leader.
