Already in 2007, The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. saw the need for a mentor program for women in business and global management. The SACC New York Mentor Program in International Business was therefore launched as a spin-off of the Executive Women’s Conference. By utilizing the Chamber’s extensive network of international business leaders, the program offers young female professionals a unique mentor experience. SACC New York’s Mentor Program values close relationships, and has a limit of 15 mentors and 15 mentees each year.
The highly successful year-long program, led by Yvonne Thunell of Thunell & Partners, includes one-on-one sessions, seminars, and workshops. It is designed for female professionals between the ages of 26-35 with high ambitions to become future leaders. The ideal mentee has a few years of work experience, knowledge of managing and executing projects, as well as a proven ability to lead.
The SACC New York Mentor Program will start October 5, 2017.
