TurkishWIN's #Giveback Programs: Mentoring


Investing in a gender equal future takes a village of change-makers! We are grateful for our partners and appreciate them to pieces. 

How We #GiveBack 

Our #GiveBack strategy has three pillars: 

  • WIN Next Generation: Aligning with partners targeting female university students and youth in general. 
  • WIN in Digital: Joining forces with partners to amplify the number of role models, career tips and audiences in digital platforms and accessible to women free of charge . 
  • WIN Together: Creating win-win partnerships to contribute to the rising number of women in the workforce. 

Our mentoring program has been active since 2012. In the TurkishWIN spirit, we give back and share our mentoring  know-how to build networks that support women. 


Win Next Generation

Since 2012, we have been sharing our experiences with our sisters in the CampusWIN Academy. They participate in our mentoring program as mentees. A mentoring journey with a CampusWIN leader is very precious for each partaking mentor. You may come across some of our testimonials. 

A wonderful byproduct of this experience has been our partnership with universities you can read on our “Win Together” projects.

Win Together 

One of the ways we measure our impact is by the number of networks we create or inspire! 

At the end of each year, we celebrate our partners and reflect on what we have accomplished. Here is a recap of what we have been working on with our co-creation partners since 2015.

The sisterhood movement- in large- has a limited number of resources and amazing ideas waiting to be unleashed. If we are not the right partner for you, we will make sure to connect you with the right one! 

Last but not least, we would like to thank our co-creation partner, EMCC Turkey, our MentorWIN Braintrust and  amazing members, YOU, for your ideas and time commitment. We could not have done all this #giveback work without the TurkishWIN sisterhood. We did well sisters..
