The Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk 2017 to be held in over 10 States across Nigeria
Idea Builders Initiative (IBI) is a Non-Profit (NGO) dedicated to providing innovative leadership and entrepreneur development interventions targeted primary at women and girls and was established in 2003, which originally focused on women, agriculture, and rural community development. It is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission as incorporated Trustees.
As part of our efforts and objectives to promote women development and create opportunities for learning and mentoring for young women in Nigeria, Idea Builders is partnering with the Vital Voices Global Partnership to lead the 2017 Women Mentoring Women Walk in Nigeria.
The Global Mentoring Walk is an opportunity to highlight the importance of women’s leadership, and to accelerate the impact of women leaders through mentoring. Organized by outstanding local leaders who are key members of the Vital Voices Global Leadership Network, the annual Mentoring Walk brings together established women leaders and emerging women leaders to walk together in their community. As they walk, they discuss their professional challenges and successes and establish a mentoring relationship in which the seasoned leader guides, advises and supports her peer.
“I can’t pay it back, so I have to pay it forward. And that’s the power of mentoring- it’s cyclical.” –Alyse Nelson, President and CEO of Vital Voices
Held on the same day in countries across the world, the Mentoring Walk unifies the Vital Voices Global Leadership Network. This year’s walk will be held Saturday, March 11th, 2017 to celebrate International Women’s Day.
