Cherie Blair Mentoring Women in Business Programme 2024

Their gold-accredited Mentoring Women in Business programme exists because they know mentoring is transformative for mentees and mentors alike. It has supported over 6,000 women entrepreneurs as mentees.

Mentoring Women in Business was born from the belief in the power of mentoring, in the role technology can play in building connections, and in community as a powerful force for change.

By forging these elements together, they created a new way to support women entrepreneurs around the world to grow and strengthen their businesses and build their skills, confidence and knowledge.
