Now Recruiting for She Shares Mentoring Project

The She Shares Mentoring program is designed to help ease the stress and build skills necessary for developing a professional career, and connect young women with trailblazing professionals. Six mentees and mentors will be engaged in a yearlong program designed to enhance their skills, connect with peers and develop a professional relationship with their mentor.

The California Center is excited to announce our partnership with the Dewey Square Group and new project She Shares Mentoring Program!!


When She Shares was launched in 2012 as an experiment the founders wondered “What would happen if we gathered the smartest, most engaging and fun women we know for an hour of unscripted conversation about what really matters in our lives?”.  Now we know: we have heard candid, personal stories from some of California’s most inspiring women leaders. They have shared with you the experiences and influences that led them to follow their passions, take risks, and build their careers and their families. We believe young woman should benefit from this wisdom.  We have seen the powerful and positive impact She Shares has on women coming together to support a common goal: cultivating successful and meaningful professional experiences for the next generation of women.


If you – or anyone you know – are interested in being a mentor or mentee for the 2014 season, applications are available here!! 2014_She_Shares_Application.pdf
