Women Mentoring walk creates next generation of women leaders

Successful professional women and emerging women leaders came together for the Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk which is part of a global movement to inspire a rising generation through mentorship. Vital Voices’ Annual Global Mentoring Walks Welcomed Thousands of Women to 174 Events Across 62 Countries Worldwide.

Ms. Archana Surana, the Founder and Director of ARCH College of Design and Business, Jaipur has been the Vital Voices Lead Fellow and Flag bearer of the Vital Voices Global Mentoring walk since 2011 and founder of Women’s Mentors Forum at Jaipur in 2014 with the view of bringing together women from different sectors and empowering them to face the challenges of life. 

Archana Surana shared her belief, “That when we are working we get so involved that we forget to unlearn and relearn. Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk and Women Mentors Forum are the best platform in providing the space to reflect and bring that change in yourself in order to adapt to the changing scenarios and time.”

This year Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk was organized on 8th ,9th and 10th March 2019 in Delhi, Jaipur, Udaipur and Bhilwara respectively
