Objectives of the project

To develop a cross-sectoral, cross-border, intergenerational and intercultural training and mentoring programme for aspiring women leaders, with a dual purpose:

  • strengthen the skills of professionals and entrepreneurs (mentors) in supporting and multiplying female leadership  


  • 20 women, over 20, of any nationality residing in Italy or Malta, at the beginning of their careers or with intermediate job roles and aspirations for professional or career growth
  • 20 mentors, women or men, with significant experience and decision-making roles in the public and private, profit and non-profit sectors or in the field of self-entrepreneurship
  • Subjects active in the world of work and institutions


  • Mapping of the needs and expectations of potential mentors and mentees in Italy and Malta, July-August 2022
  • Development of training modules and dedicated tools for mentoring and experimentation in transnational pilot sessions (English working language), 7th-11th November 2022
  • Recruitment and selection of the beneficiaries of the programme (mentees) and of the mentors who will support them (deadline 25th October 2022): Mentor: flyer with eligibility criteria - Mentee: flyer with eligibility criteria
  • Mentee-mentor matching and activation of the Mentoring path with training dedicated to each group: 24 pairs Mentor-Mentee started the pathway (november 2022-april 2023); 21 pairs finalized it.
