Peer Learning Circle
Through the auspices of the AmCham Network for Women in Global Organisations the American Chamber will pilot two new programmes in 2017:
Cross-Sector Mentorship: Supporting women in roles with international responsibilities by matching them with mentors in other companies who have current or recent relevant international experience. The focus for the mentor programme is personal career development on a one to one basis.
Cross-Sector Peer Learning Circle: Helping those in international roles develop skills to make their role, company, and Ireland, pivotal in global corporate development and create a network which supports this goal. Areas of focus for the learning circle include: How is one proactive in developing the company in Ireland; How do you challenge status quo; How do you push the boundaries; How do you leverage your company internal capabilities and resources; Who do you need to know in Ireland to secure new or expanded mandates; How do you tell the ‘Why Ireland’ or ‘Why Europe’ story?
