Our Purpose

The Enterprising Women Foundation Mentoring Program provides high school girls with an opportunity to meet and connect with outstanding women entrepreneurs in their community at a local event—a breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea—designed to recognize their leadership potential, inspire them to dream big, and focus on the next steps to realize their potential as entrepreneurs or leaders in STEM-based fields and other industries.

Enterprising Women is a partner in the Million Women Mentors Project and has committed to bringing a focus on opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to high school girls who may not have role models or mentors. Over the next 20 years, STEM-based industries will lead the way and participation among girls is still lagging in technology, engineering, and related fields. With its strong network of successful women entrepreneurs, Enterprising Women is uniquely positioned to connect outstanding women entrepreneurial leaders with high school girls, many of whom will be the first generation in their families to attend college or may be from at-risk communities where mentoring options are limited or not available.

In communities where mentorship programs do exist, the Enterprising Women Foundation Program will provide existing mentoring programs for high school young women with a unique resource to enhance their programming. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and learn from highly successful women entrepreneurs and corporate leaders from a wide range of industries—many from STEM-based fields.
