PWN Warsaw: Cross the Borders and Boost Your Career

Achieve your goals and boost your career with PWN’s International Mentoring Program!

PWN Warsaw has initiated an International Mentoring Program. The goal is to launch a global pool of international mentors to be available for all members (women and men) across the PWN Global network.


President of PWN Warsaw, Jowita Bukowinska idea behind the initiative was twofold: "We volunteered to start the program for two reasons: to leverage potential which we have as a global network and to address the needs of our members in development of their international careers".

If you plan to develop your career and benefit from the experience of international mentors this program is for you!

Why International Mentoring?

The International Mentoring Program (IMP) supports global managers and future leaders in their career development with a focus on international actions and global markets. 

Mentees will have an opportunity to be paired with mentors from a different economic, social and cultural environment. This will allow mentors and mentees to move out of their comfort zones and look at their professional goals from a completely different perspective. 

 Our International Mentoring Program:

  • will be complementary to PWN city networks’ local mentoring programs 
  • will promote values and best practices among members with diverse professional backgrounds
  • will leverage talents and opportunities throughout the network.

Launch and Details

The program launch took place on January 4, 2017 supported by two guest speakers and international mentors: Bozena Lesniewska, Board Member of Orange Polska and Dr Dayner Azzellino, Action Group Business Director.

The program will run with quarterly recruitment drives, with cut off dates in 2017, of: 

  • 15 March 2017 pilot
  • 15 June
  • 15 September
  • 15 December


More information about the international mentors will be provided on the PWN Global web site in due course and overall patronage for the program is provided by Lorraine Tilbury, VP Mentoring PWN Global, who says: "I'm delighted to see this "grass-roots" initiative take off! And there is no better place to coordinate this new adventure in PWN Mentoring than from Warsaw, a city that has seen tremendous change with a strong global focus. I'm confident that the dynamic leaders of PWN Warsaw will make this a great success and I'm very proud to support their international mentoring program."

A new performance review process could fight cultural bias against women at work

A month or so ago, a friend of mine—a postdoctoral fellow at my university—invited me out for lunch, along with a colleague I’d never met. At lunch, my friend introduced me: “Aliya is a postdoc here. She studies unemployment with a focus on gender, so she can tell you about that if you have...

PWN Global in Romania

Three Day Workshop on Women on Boards and Engaging Men

A collection of PWN Global city networks joined members of the corporate partner community in Bucharest on Thursday 18th to Saturday 20th May to share experiences and build action plans. The topic? How to get more women on boards and how to engage men in the roles of MANbassadors.

Taking the lead, PWN Romania's President, Virginia Otel, crafted a packed agenda that helped all the people involved build concrete next steps that can be put in place by our city networks around the world.

PWN Global's President, Sonya Richardson, presided over the sessions with support from VP Engaging Men, Rob Baker and VP Executive Forum, Sorana Baciu. Over the next weeks we will share with you the insights gained during these fruitful sessions. In the meantime, if you are a senior executive who wants to get involved with our activities, please be in touch.
