The Vital Voices organization in partnership with the members of its Global Leadership Network, coordinates Mentoring Walks in several countries around the world. All these Walks take place on the same day with the idea for mentors to communicate their knowledge and experience to younger colleagues. Since the establishment of the Global Women's Mentoring Walk in 2008 this initiative has gathered thousands of women leaders on all continents.

Mentoring Walks illustrate the commitment of women to global leadership development and highlight the achievements of women around the world. This year 150 Mentoring Walks will take place in over 60 countries.

In Serbia, the first Mentoring walk was organized on November 15, 2008 in Belgrade and Niš, and brought together more than fifteen successful women from the fields of business, public life, NGOs, as well as a student, future women leaders, in order to exchange knowledge, skills and experience. Mentoring Walk in Serbia was initiated by three ladies Andrea Brbaklić, Marija Nikolic and Ana Firtel, who was participant in the program Global Women Leaders Mentoring Partnership, which is jointly implemented by Fortune magazine and the US State Department, in cooperation with the NGO Vital Voices.

The Program "Share Your Knowledge is an unique program which gives opportunity for personal and professional development of women. The program is based on concept of mentoring, and is aimed on developing support between women, through sharing of knowledge, experience and solidarity, promotion of good role models, networking and making women stronger. The main goal of the program is the professional and personal growth of women in our society, through the sharing of knowledge and experiences. The main idea of the program is to have successful and competent women, leaders for different professions that will share their knowledge and experience with young women with similar interests in order to contribute to the making of new opportunities for young women for the development of their careers with the intention of making a positive shift and establishing a healthy base for future long-lasting cooperation. The Mentoring model was developed in other parts of the world and it is successfully realized in all social areas, from science and business to politics. This model is adapted to Serbia considering our environment and social opportunities.The Embassy of the United States of America in Belgrade, ERSTE bank, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and European Movement in Serbia (EMinS) jountly implement program “Share your knowledge” from 2010.


The Women's Academy of Leadership brings together politicians and activists and offers them the opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills, but also to connect in order to fight together and advocate women's human rights to achieve full equality. As the civil society organization with the same name, it emerged as a natural continuation of the program of support to active women in public life launched in 2011. Founded by Center for Support of Women, Belgrade Fund for Political Excellence and  Center for Modern Skills.
