The Women in WASH Mentorship Program will connect women working in the WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) sector. The focus is to help junior professionals to develop their skills and support their personal and professional growth with guidance, advice, and feedback from a mentor.

Program Details

How Does it Work?

The Women in WASH Mentorship Program will have an online format, and it is free of charge.

For the initial phase, we expect to have a maximum of 30 participants — 20 mentees, and 10 mentors — and each mentor will co-mentor two mentees.

The mentoring relationship is expected to last for 6 months; though, engagement between mentors and mentees can of course continue beyond the 6 months if both parties agree.

If either party decides to terminate the mentoring relationship before the 6 months is up, you can do so, but please communicate this to the Agenda for Change by sending an email to the Program Coordinator, Ana Palacios.

Who can be a mentee?

Mentees are young professionals or students (with 0-4 years of professional experience) under the age of 35 who identify as women.

Who can be a mentor?

Mentors are senior professionals who identify as women, with a minimum of 5 years of experience (no age requirement) working within the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sectors.
