Now, for many years the International Table Tennis Federation has developed and implemented a policy to level the field of play; from Development and Education gender mainstreaming projects to women´s specific actions such as equal prize money at events, leadership opportunities, women´s day activities, monitoring events participation and regular women specific development programme courses across the world.

Following the Ernst and Young (EY) Women Athletes Business Network (WABN) Mentoring Programme launch, the International Table Tennis Federation is pleased to disseminate this learning opportunity with the purpose of promoting leadership training opportunities for female athletes.

Daniela Gomes, ITTF Development and Education and Training Projects Officer

Are you looking to take your game to the next level? If you are a woman athlete transitioning into a new career, take it to the next level and apply for the EY WABN Mentoring Programme by Friday 3rd November 2017.

The WABN Mentoring Programme is a one-on-one mentorship initiated for selected female athletes who want to become impactful leaders outside of their sport. In partnership with the International Women’s Forum (IWF), each year EY will pair up to 25 elite female athletes with top business leaders from the IWF network of senior women executive mentors.

Mentors and mentees agree to connect at least eight times across the course of the year; these elite athletes are selected based on a proven track record of athletic and academic achievement and a desire to be impactful leaders.

Don’t miss your chance to participate in this amazing programme!
