Mentor Program Overview

SACC New York Mentor Program

The Mentor Program supports the next generation’s leaders by connecting young professionals with experienced mentors involved in international business.

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.

It was truly valuable to have a mentor together with whom I could discuss and reflect on certain topics in relation to my job. In addition, the SACC New York Mentor Program creates value by showing female role models.

SACC New York Mentee 2009


A mentor, by definition, is responsible for personal and skill development. In the SACC-NY mentoring program, the word mentor has a completely different meaning. To be assigned a mentee who is already a qualified, successful and competent individual and be offered inspirational lectures from some of Sweden's foremost role models has meant that I have grown at least as much as my protégé. I have expanded my network and found at the very least one new friend.
