Mentorship is a driving force in developing the next generation of leading talent. Women in Payments® is dedicated to fostering the career development of women payments professionals around the globe. Whether you’re striving to get ahead and create a tangible road map to success or you’re a seasoned professional who’s ready to give back, the Women in Payments® Global Mentorship Program has the network, platform and tools to help you do just that.

After much discussion with women leaders in the industry, we are pleased to announce our Global Mentorship Council — a group of passionate women leaders from around the global payments ecosystem, who will guide and shape the the Women in Payments® Global Mentorship Program.

Mentee applications are now closed. Please join us in October for Cohort 4.

How It works
Mentors and mentees will register and provide background and qualifying information about themselves to help the council make appropriate pairings. Participants will be given the option to be paired with someone from their own country, or a different country.
Parameters and Timelines
  • A 12-month program with mentor and mentee pairs in Australia, Canada, USA and UK.
  • 6 meetings over 12 months, 45-60 minutes in length, held at a convenient location (can be a virtual meeting as required)
  • $250 registration fee for each mentee
  • Women in Payments® will provide high-level guidance and topics for participants to use as backgrounders to kick off the mentor/mentee discussions. They will cover a range of topics with curated materials for reference. Mentors and mentees can select topics which they feel are most relevant to their objectives.
