Our Campaign: Going Global
We are excited to announce that, to facilitate traffic and applications from women around the world, we are launching a global campaign on Feb 28.
This will mean that:
1. Our website will change from mentorher.ie to mentorher.global.
2. Women can sign up from anywhere in the world to mentor or be a Mentee on our next program beginning April 12th. With the added benefit that you can still choose to be matched with someone in your region. Group chats will also be available for people on the program and for particular regions (i.e. Ireland, America, Europe etc.)
3. We need to raise money to support this, so we are launching an Indiegogo Campaign on Feb 28 to help us facilitate this move.
Indiegogo is a crowdfunding site that allows people to donate to a cause and receive a perk for their donation. These perks will include: purchasing our new book (see below) and signing up to be a Mentor, a Mentee or both!
Why We're Making this Move
Mentor Her came about as a result of Irish lockdown (number one) in March 2020. We began the company because we could see that women were re-evaluating their careers and starting businesses- but they needed help to get to the next stage. Originally, we thought our first program back in September would coincide with the reopening of the world again. Almost a year later, the situation hasn't changed and women still need help- all over the world.
In November of last year, we noticed our website traffic began to filter in from all around the world. We have applications from Mentors and Mentees from Dubai to New York, Sydney to Buenos Aires and we want to be able to help everyone, not just our wonderful women in Ireland.
That's why we've decided to take the next step to allow women from all over the world to join us. To get there, we're launching a global campaign where women around the world can join the program and our supporters can donate to get us to that next level!
