What is the OW International Women Mentorship Program?
Mentoring is an impactful way to coach future consultants and provide them with the right tools from the very beginning.
It is not about “training,” but rather the creation of a trusting relationship that will help you navigate your future career.
Mentoring plays a critical role in the progression of female professionals in all sectors. Lack of mentoring, exclusion from networks, and absence of female role models are cited as key barriers to advancement for women.
Our mentees are matched with mentors to help them prepare the first steps of their career in consulting. Mentoring relationships are sustained over a period of 5-6 months. Meetings are scheduled monthly and – depending on the preferences of mentors and mentees – they can take place in person or remotely.
Don’t miss out on your opportunity to successfully start your career in management consulting!

During the first session organized in 2019, I had the privilege to act as a mentor to three women during our recruiting program “International Women Mentorship” helping them better prepare for the process and encouraging them to increase their confidence and to achieve their potentialAnna Rosati Principal
With this amazing experience, I had the unique chance to discover the role of women in strategic consulting and learn about Oliver Wyman values through several meetings with talented people from varied backgrounds and areas of expertise. I was also assigned to a mentor, which is now my career advisor, who gave me very useful advice and tips to face the interview process in the best way. This program made me feel the buzz of people doing work that matters and live the workplace even before being hiredElisa Sordo Consultant
