While women represent 39 per cent of world employment, only 27 per cent of managerial positions in the world were occupied by women in 2018. With Femstory, we want to ensure full participation of women in leadership and decision making.
From our own experience we know about the scarcity of female networks. And we believe that mentorship, as well as community-building, are essential for everyone in different stages in their lives to take the best decisions. Therefore, we aim to connect and empower women to ask questions, get inspiring answers and grow further to write their own story.

How It Works
We offer a structured, well-rounded mentorship batch program for women to give and receive advice and get inspired. Therefore we match mentors and mentees based on interests and profiles to start our 1-1 mentoring programs.
Every mentor batch runs for four months and can be extended afterwards depending on the mentor/mentee individually. We suggest to do 1 hour of mentoring per month, but matches can decide depending on their preference.
Along with our mentoring batch program, we have an active community, allowing our mentees and mentors to share and connect, participate in discussion rounds with inspiring women, and join training sessions that help our mentees and mentors to succeed - also in difficult situations.
