We are inviting you, once again, to utilize your unique talents, your time and your expertise to help develop the skills of rising global women leaders.
In partnership with EY, IWF is proud to announce the continuation of the Women Athletes Business Network Mentoring (WABN) program. The second year of this unique and successful initiative supports and mentors elite female athletes as they transition from sport to other spheres of leadership and will build upon the successful lessons of the 2015 inaugural year.
These amazing women are Olympians, record-holders, and professional and collegiate athletes who have made a tremendous impact within their sport and now seek guidance as they navigate their next steps and professional endeavors. They possess a critical foundation of leadership that can't be taught in the classroom - attributes such as teamwork, perseverance, discipline and a commitment to achieving success.
This program was inspired, championed and brought to life by two passionate and dedicated IWF Members, Global Vice Chair of EY, Beth Brooke-Marciniak and former IWF President and Global Ambassador Deedee Corradini.
Up to 25 mentees will be competitively selected for this unique opportunity. The application deadline is August 2, 2015. IWF members are encouraged to identify candidates in their areas to apply for the program. IWF members are not eligible to be candidates. Please visit the IWF website, for candidate criteria and the application.
We must also thank the current mentors from IWF membership for the important contribution of their time. The first WABN cohort includes women from 14 nations representing 17 different sports. We are pleased to announce that the 2015 WABN class will be attending the IWF World Leadership Conference in Boston as they gather for a special Deedee Corradini Leadership Roundtable. For more information about the currentmentors and mentees please follow this link.
IWF knows the value these young women of talent and potential can bring to the world. If you would like to be a mentor in the program, please contact IWF's Director of Partnerships & External Affairs, Crosby Cromwell, firstname.lastname@example.org.
