PRESS RELEASE – On Saturday March 5, 2016 Saint Lucian Women leaders will join thousands of women around the world who will be celebrating International Women’s Day with Vital Voices Global Leadership Network (GLN) through their signature event – Global Mentoring Walk.
International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political contributions of women around the world. While progress has been made, there is still work to be done. International Women’s Day serves as a call to action to close the gap between progress and potential, in order to accelerate gender parity globally.
For nearly ten years, these walks have connected established women leaders and a rising generation of aspiring leaders to foster women’s leadership through mentoring. This year there are 87 walks planned in 59 countries. 2016 however will be the second such walk to be held in Saint Lucia hosted by local flagbearers Celestial Self Development Centre.
The walk is designed to bring together established women leaders and emerging women leaders to provide mentorship, guidance and support that will empower emerging women leaders to succeed.
