nnovate 50/50 is a gender equality program composed of mentorship and advocacy. We are mentoring young women (18+) in Leadership, Government/Public Administration, Entrepreneurship/Business, and Financial Literacy. Through mentorship, we are working with thought leaders within each field to benefit young women by empowering them to fulfill the vision for their futures.

Mentorship benefits both the Mentor and the Mentee as it facilitates strong bonds, guidance, such as through problem-solving or situational, encouraging her, sharing new ideas and strategies, and professional success.

Joining Innovate 50/50 is a valuable experience that will enhance women’s success and help promote gender equality.
