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 87 Mentoring Walks will take place in over 59 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 "Share Your Knowledge - Become a Mentor 2015/2016" program is organized for the sixth year in a row by European Movement in Serbia with the cooperation and support of the Embassy of the United States and Erste Bank and Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE ). The goal of this program is the economic and professional empowerment of women in Serbian society through exchange of experiences and knowledge between professional women leaders from different professions (business, public and civil sector) and younger women with similar interests and a desire to be successful in their fields. This will help create opportunities for these women to improve their career path in order to achieve positive change and to set a sound basis for future long-term cooperation.
