Promoting female role models

Role models inspire us everyday

Empowering girls

Girls should know they can be absolutely anything they want

Everyone can become a leader

We can all be leaders and the best way to become one is to get inspiration from another

Womentoring is more than a network or a program: it’s a mindset!

Womentoring started as a small idea: what if there were more female role models? Wouldn’t gender bias be just an old memory? While there are plenty of male role models in most industries, female are still under-represented, especially in the STEMs but also on boards.


Our goal: gender equality

Women running companies

Womentoring was born in November 2018, right after Web Summit. It took us a while to understand what could be expected from young women to empower them. After months of asking questions, we finally decided to launch our platform.

  • Women thinking they could make it to the top 32% 32%
  • Men thinking women have equal talent whatever the field 71% 71%
  • Women discouraged by the glass ceiling 49% 49%
  • Men not aware gender bias does exist 87% 87%
