KEYNOTE | Mentorship Matters: Lessons from the Olympia Snowe Women’s Leadership Institute

Friday, May 10th, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Christina McAnuff, Olympia Snowe Womens Leadership Institute

What’s it all about? In 2015, former Maine Senator Olympia Snowe launched her Women’s Leadership Institute, an innovative three-year program designed to help develop leadership, collaboration, and problem-solving skills in future generations of Maine women. The program facilitates meaningful mentor relationships between high school girls and women advisors throughout the state with a curriculum focused on three themes: My Values, My Voice, and My Vision. We invite Christina McAnuff, Executive Director of the Institute, to discuss the impact of this evidence-based program, and its implications for developing leaders in the state. Students from the Institute and their advisors will join Christina on stage to share their stories, experiences, and the impact of mentorship on their lives.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Uncover the evidence-based outcomes of successful mentorship relationships.
  • Learn how this innovative program was developed and implemented in the state of Maine.
  • Take ideas back to your office on how to foster a mentor network within your organization or empower external mentor relationships in the community.
