The aim of the program is to provide students with the opportunity to find inspiration and guidance from professionals relevant to their future career. With support from the mentor we want to encourage the mentee to challenge herself, identify goals and establish a career plan. We believe that motivation starts with inspiration and thus inspiration is the key stone for a successful mentorship.
Our mentees are a select group of ambitious young female professionals and students within Business, Law, IT and other relevant fields. They are curious and driven women who aspire to challenge themselves and achieve top positions in their future careers.
The mentors are some of the top professionals in their field: young, mid-career or senior professionals within, inter alia, Business, Law and IT. They have an inspiring and successful professional and/or academic background and thrive to empower future talent. We are happy to accept both male and female Mentors.
Autumn 2017 we have the following mentors:
• Denise Luxenburg - Bonnier Magazines & Brands
• Lidia Jast - Fd. Sentat Asset Management

Each mentor will be paired with one or more mentees with interests relevant to their current career and previous experience. Each mentorship reaches over a semester, around 6-months. Contact is expected to obtain throughout the program on a monthly basis via meetings, e-mail or telephone. The mentor and mentee are encouraged to arrange further contact and meetings outside the minimum guide lines. During the mentorship period smaller networking events will be arranged, to which the mentor and mentee are invited.
