A platform that empower women in the workplace by making mentorship approachable and accessible.
Women are increasingly underrepresented the higher up the corporate hierarchy one looks. In response, many companies are realizing the need to launch women-focused mentorship programs to help advance their female employees’ careers. However, current mentorship programs are flawed with a lack of mentors that makes effective matching difficult.
Compass is a women-focused, online mentorship platform that matches mentees with mentors based on their needs in different stages of their career. To retain and motivate mentors, mentee’s feedback provides a valuable learning experience and validation for mentors. With Compass, mentees are encouraged and empowered to become future mentors and help work toward a gender equal workplace.
