Women’s History Month

Each March, we mark Women’s History Month as a way to honor, highlight, and elevate the voices and contributions of women worldwide. This year, MENTOR is celebrating Women’s History Month by sharing women’s wisdom and stories about mentoring to inspire individuals to step up and become mentors. Each day in March, MENTOR will spotlight at least one woman – from history or present day – sharing her own mentoring journey or encouragement through video, photos, and quotes via social media.

We encourage you to also share YOUR Women’s History Month story using hashtags #MentorIRL and #WomensHistoryMonth on social media.
