FORTUNE/State Department Global Women's Mentoring Partnership
The FORTUNE/State Department Global Women's Mentoring Partnership provides mentorship opportunities for emerging women leaders from all over the world with FORTUNE'S Most Powerful Women Leaders, executives from companies such as Time Inc., Google, Inc., Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. and Exxon Mobil Corp.
In 2010, the U.S. Department of State in partnership with the FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Summit and Vital Voices Global Partnership, brought 32 female business leaders from 20 countries and the West Bank to the U.S. for a three week long mentorship program as well as meetings with senior women leaders in government, academia and business in Washington, D.C. and New York City.
This video highlights the experience of one of the participants, Josephine Mudenge Kairaba, an architect and business owner from Rwanda, who spent her mentorship with Victoria Harker, CFO, and Elizabeth Hackenson, CIO at AES Corporation.
