Role Models are key – Mentoring by MEWEM Europa (Panel)
Fr., 22. April
Cinenova – Cine 3
Current studies underline the striking importance of role models for the personal development of women in particular. That is where mentoring programmes come in, bringing together newcomers with specialists from the music business whose expertise, visibility and networking affinity clearly turns them into the role models that are so necessary in our sector.
MEWEM Europa is a project to implement and manage mentoring programmes for women in the music business on a European scale. The project’s goal is that in the future, more women will also shape the sector in leadership positions and as founders. Therefore, the project promotes access to management positions and entrepreneurship as well as the development of management skills among young women in the music business.
For this purpose, a mentoring-based training programme, adapted to the music sector and with a European dimension, is being created. In cooperation with seven partner organisations in six countries, who themselves conduct national mentoring programmes during the project, a model mentoring programme for women in the music industry has been developed from which other European organisations can also benefit.
Mentors, mentees as well as project managers from different MEWEM partner countries report on their experiences in the current programmes and reflect on future developments.
