Encouraging Women Across All Borders
“Mentors build confidence. And confidence kills imposter syndrome.”
We are a non-profit organization that aims to strengthen the confidence of young women through personal mentorship, a strong support network of inspirational role models, and projects that encourage participants to go outside of their comfort zone in their careers of choice.
We simply want to provide all women with a set of tools that can allow them to feel good about themselves in any path that they decide to explore.

“In studies, men overestimate their abilities and performance, and women underestimate both. Their performances do not differ in quality.”
- Brenda Major, a social psychologist at the University of California at Santa Barbara
Our mission is to encourage those that identify with the challenges that many young women face—a lack of confidence and opportunity—to step outside of their comfort zone and pursue any path of choice. We are dedicated to providing these individuals with personal mentors and the resources necessary to be successful, while connecting them with additional female role models.
We envision a world where all young women have the confidence to pursue any path of their choice with equal access to opportunities and supportive mentors.

We're Building Confidence by Establishing a Network of Role Models
"I want them to know I'm available to answer questions and bounce ideas off, and I hope to show the participants that people who are older than they are can be easy to talk to!"
Dr. Linden Ashcroft
Secondary Mentor at Melbourne
"The culture at my institution is to play it safe until you're a Masters student. This program will really give undergrads the opportunity to get engaged early, especially the women in male-dominated fields."
Primary Mentor at KU Leuven
"I want to make long-lasting friends who I can talk to for hopefully the rest of my life, and broaden my horizons by discussing topics of which they might have different perspectives on. "
