Equilibrium 2018 – Call for Mentees and Mentors

Dear BCC Members, Partners, and Friends,

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Equilibrium Programme 2018 – a programme for mentoring senior professional women in the Czech Republic. 2018 will be the 8th year of this unique and tremendously successful programme we again thank the valued support of Česká spořitelna, our general sponsor.

We are currently seeking people who have the ambition and professionalism, as well as the time to devote and desire to be either a mentee or a mentor in the upcoming season.  Applications are welcome from both members and non-members of the BCC.

The main goal of the Equilibrium is to empower women, to support them in their life and career path. The second objective is to assist women in restarting their careers after taking extended leave from work due to raising children. The Equilibrium shapes the forefront of gender diversity in the Czech business environment.

We cordially invite you to take part in the selection process of the programme. Please see the programme criteria and application steps below.

The deadline for application is January 19, 2018 sent via e-mail to: anna.cimburkova@britcham.cz.

Criteria & Expectations:

Mentees:

Ideal applicants for the programme are women who are seen as ‘potential leaders’ in their current business or organisation. We would expect the applicants to have been in management roles for a minimum of 3+ years. Possible mentees can be also women restarting their career after taking extended leave from work due to raising children. Mentees should be prepared to meet with their mentor once a month for around 2 hours, and to attend a minimum of three joint sessions and a number of workshops or other meetings throughout the year.

Mentees should be independently minded, flexible and keen to develop and expand their skills and competencies in order to achieve their leadership and career goals. Applicants must be able to communicate fluently in English. All shortlisted candidates will be contacted via a phone call for a short interview.

Mentors:

We are looking for both women and men who have relevant leadership experience (either business or civic), and would be willing to act as a mentor by supporting their mentees in achieving their career goals. Mentors should be able to demonstrate that they possess the experience necessary for acting as an effective business mentor. Priority will be given to people who have either served as board directors or those with a strong entrepreneurial background.

Previous mentoring experience is also an advantage, but is certainly not a requirement; passion, commitment and a willingness to help your mentee are required! As a mentor, you must be prepared to meet with your mentee once a month for around 2 hours, and to attend approximately three joint sessions and number of workshops or other meetings throughout the year.

 

All mentee and mentor candidates will be asked to provide:

  • Application form
  • CV
  • Cover letter
  • Short bio
  • Photo

 

The deadline for application is January 19, 2018 sent via e-mail to: anna.cimburkova@britcham.cz.
