The Importance of Mentoring for Women in Tech

A major key to the success of prominent women in tech leadership is having effective mentoring and coaching along their journey.

So this event touched on exactly that: ‘Who pushed you to become the leader you are today, and how?’. Theodo brought together successful women to share their experiences on the importance of mentoring in launching a successful career in leadership.

At Theodo, our motto is fostering the next generation of leaders in tech, but there’s a lot of work to be done to support women further. Just 4.8% of Fortune 500 company leadership positions are held by women.

Mentoring can help you to foster ambition, push you to go out of your comfort zone, and open the doors to a new world of opportunity. This was the beginning of a series of events to bring together women to empower each other and create effective and powerful relationships in leadership development.
