From Zurich to Mumbai…join the Mentoring Magic…

by | Dec 20, 2017

Within a couple of weeks of launching THRIVE, several friends and colleagues commented, ‘How I wish I could participate in THRIVE’…and I thought – ‘what a fabulous idea?’

Amazing things happen, when women support each other. With the support of Aparna Vishwasrao who generously offered a location and Bharti Dekate and Anjali Gulati who wholeheartedly agreed to support, we moved overnight from idea to implementation.

It is my great pleasure to bring the magic of Thrive from its zealous launch in Zurich to the buzzing metropolis of Mumbai on 5th Jan, 2018.

What is Thrive?

A mentoring program launched in Switzerland and with a global reach, Thrive supports potential mentors and mentees to form a meaningful and successful relationship.

We know that the success of a mentoring relationship is a combination of the right mindset, skill-set and chemistry between the mentor and mentee. Hence we launch the relationship through a face to face mentor-mentee matching event.

THRIVE provides mentors and mentees with resources that enable them to have a successful start and a like-minded community that supports and challenges.

So if you are ready to join this international team of driven women,

  3. Commit to meeting your mentee/mentor at least once a month for one hour through 2018 and engage with the THRIVE community through our private LinkedIn group

Davos, the Equality myth & #MentorHer

  Being Switzerland based, Davos is 'just' a train ride away for me. Interestingly though I have been to Davos to ski a few times, this was the first time in 17 years that I decided to participate at the 2018 World Economic Forum (WEF). With 21 percent of the...
