Mentorship is an essential part of the leadership equation. It enables us to talk through ideas, mistakes, opportunities, and challenges. The right mentor has an exceedingly positive impact on not only your career and professional performance, but on your private life as well. 

 

But finding a mentor can be difficult. The Phoenix chapter of the national organization, Girls in Tech has recently launched a local mentor network using LeadForCareer’s AI-powered platform to help women create meaningful interactions and foster mentor-mentee relationships. 

 

LeadForCareer’s mentoring platform was created by female-founder Yumi Alyssa Kimura, co-founder and CEO, to empower women in technologies to connect with like-minded professionals. Kimura hopes that platforms like LeadForCareer’s will “help retention and feelings of belonging within their companies and within the tech world as a whole,” citing that women leave the tech industry at a rate of 45% higher than men. 

 

LeadForCareer’s AI-powered platform isn’t only for women, however. Men are welcome to join and use the platform, learn about the issues women in technology face today, and be a part of building the solutions and a better future. 

 

Anyone interested in learning more about or signing up as a mentor or mentee can visit LeadForCareer.com.
