About Mentor Walks Asia:

As a mentee, you will be introduced to our many esteemed mentors and have the opportunity to select your Mentor based on your preferences and availability. Mentor and mentee groups are typically 3-5 people. You will have the incredible opportunity to seek advice from seasoned professionals who will provide an open ear, honest feedback, and meaningful guidance.

Our Mentors & Mentees

Mentors and Mentees come from a diverse variety of backgrounds including, international development, foreign affairs, law, finance and banking, business development, marketing, public relations, humanitarian and non-profit work, corporate social responsibility, academia, entrepreneurship, hospitality, healthcare, technology and media, sustainability, energy, international trade, and more.

Mentors are at the top of their fields. Whether in senior management in a major company, a thought leader, a business owner, or simply a force of nature in their professions, they’ve worked hard to get where they are and are high achievers. With their experience, they are role models to other inspired women in our community.

Mentees are either in their early professional years, have been in their career for a number of years now, or are entrepreneurs looking to learn from other enterprising women. Mentees may be hitting their stride professionally, are becoming a key contributor to their company, or growing their experience and expertise. They invest in themselves and other women to keep that momentum going. Mentees are not high school or university students, but rather professionals making their mark in the working world.

The Shanghai Mentor Walks

The Shanghai Mentor Walks was started in 2015, after the immense success of it's sister programme in Beijing. Each supporting organization coordinates a different month of the Mentor Walk.

Mentors and mentees gather in the park for an informal early morning walk on the 3rd Friday of every month. We meet at 7:45 am at the gates of Jing'an Park and walk in smaller groups for approximately an hour. Each year, the Mentor Walks kick off in March and close in November with a large group mentor and mentee gathering at M on the Bund.
