Mentoring young women on succeeding in the private sector
WMF is a Kuwait-based project with a vision to support Kuwait’s economy by increasing the numbers of Kuwaiti women executives and women entrepreneurs. We aim to achieve our mission through creating development, mentorship and networking opportunities for women professionals, while at the same time providing a platform for data collection and dissemination. The WMF Project operates under the not-for-profit company Montada Meem «متدى ميم».
The WMF Program is a cross-company, cross-sector mentorship program for women, which includes:
- Semi-annual mentorship forums on entrepreneurship and corporate careers
- Yearly career development programs that include: mentorship programs, professional development workshops, and professional leadership workshops
- Yearly research and data collection on women in Kuwait’s private sector
WMF aims to help empower many more young Kuwaiti women and give them the rights tools, skills and knowledge to succeed in the private sector. Empowering more women economically will lead to a rise in the number of women executives and successful women entrepreneurs. With a rise in the number of women executives and entrepreneurs companies will benefit financially from gender diversity at the leadership level. The financial gains realized by companies through gender diversity will positively reflect on Kuwait’s private sector which in turn will help Kuwait’s economy become diverse and sustainable.
