On Thursday October 11 Cherie Blair made the opening key note address for the Global Women's Leadership Summit (GWALS). GWALS is a unique online summit, featuring top women business leaders giving strategies and insight to other women professionals. Hundreds of women watched the summit live and thousands more from across the globe will have the opportunity to access it as a recording.
Cherie touched on the different struggles that women face in business and highlighted the many different ways in which women can overcome these barriers. In particular she focused on mentoring, an act of support that Cherie herself has benefited from throughout her career. She also spoke about her Foundation's Mentoring Programme, which connects women entrepreneurs with highly skilled professionals around the world over an innovative online platform powered by Google. She encouraged listeners to go seek out their own mentors, and to give back as well by being a mentor to someone else. She ended with a call to action: take advantage of what you learn and remember to share it with others.
