Supporters play an essential role in 40u40! They help select the Fellows during the interview phase, they share expertise and wisdom with the Fellows, and they help grow the initiative. By endorsing this initiative, Supporters participate to a leadership transmission between generations.
The wealth of experience provided by the group of Supporters is a precious gift for the Fellows, who can accelerate their development by benefiting from the coaching of seasoned individuals. The role in which they help the most is the individual Mentorship offered to each participant of 40u40. Mentorship is aimed at providing participants an accelerated personal and leadership development journey through regular one-on-one interactions with one of the Supporters. As mentoring is bi-directional, it is also an opportunity for the Mentors to be exposed to the ideas, challenges, questions and reflections of the next generation, and forge a strong connection with a younger leader.
