JobsForHer (JFH), a connecting portal that enables women on a professional break to restart their careers, launched its exclusive mentorship board – MentorForHer for women relaunching their careers. The online mentorship board includes some of the most prominent experts from multifarious industries across India. The concept of mentorship has been highly regarded by people across the world since ancient times. Today, mentorship can be witnessed in the corporate sphere as well, with men and women seeking out mentors to give them a sense of purpose, direction, and inspiration in their careers. To make the journey less challenging, JFH’s MentorForHer initiative gives women the opportunity to pick seasoned expertise from an industry veteran on where to go next, and how to re-enter the workforce that they once had to leave behind.
Launched by Vaishali Kasture, Partner, Deloitte Consulting at the JobsForHer Ambassador Meetup, the Mentorship Board is an excellent networking opportunity for women and individuals who wish to support them in their endeavor. “Usually, women lose confidence, connectivity, and their network when they take a career break. The JobsForHer mentorship board provides them with valuable credentials like an informal peer group, contacts, and access to the best corporates in India,” said Kasture. “The support and encouragement mentorship offers is a huge confidence-builder for women restarting their careers.
