Equalizer Foundation (Egyenlítő Alapítvány) is launching the next edition of its mentorship program, powered by Morgan Stanley, aimed at helping female entrepreneurs this year, with applications open until April 15.

The foundation announced its first mentoring program with the name #insteadofflowers during its annual Women’s Day Conference in 2022.  Graduates and university students got the opportunity to meet at least once with experienced female role models who are members or part of the foundation’s network. Some 40 mentor-mentee couples had inspirational meetings, shared their knowledge, and built networks.

Based on this positive experience Equalizer Foundation decided to start a well-established mentor program in 2023, where 50 mentor-mentee pairs participated in collaborative work for nearly eight months.

Hungary has one of the lowest levels of female representation in company leadership roles in the EU with 10.5% compared to 31.6% EU average (EIGE, 2022) and the foundation's mission is to help strengthen Hungary's position through its programs. In order to drive change it is important for those organisations based in Hungary, who are dedicated to gender equality, to collaborate and support female talent to become leaders.

To make this happen, the foundation is aiming to connect 75 mentors with mentees and build a platform where shared experiences, knowledge, and networks will help to develop the next cohort of female leaders in Hungary. Equalizer will be there every step of the way, providing the guidance and framework to ensure the mentoring program is a success for everyone participating.

More information about the mentorship program, eligibility requirements, and application is available on the foundation's website.
