The Importance Of Mentoring Young Women

Michelle Curless, Chief Customer Officer of Cheetah Digital, reports on why it’s so important to mentor your women.

Every woman faces different challenges in their career, and our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) give women in the organisation an opportunity to share their experiences, foster allyship, and network with others to form mentorships across the business.

At Cheetah Digital, our ERG initiative promotes an intersectional understanding that women of different underrepresented groups face individual yet overlapping experiences in the workplace. Women in Tech (WiT) is a women-led group that platforms women in leadership positions, allowing them to share their experiences to guide women on their career path. WiT features internal and guest speakers, focused on empowering women to network, share their stories, and connect with others in the business to better navigate their paths.

Along with Women in Technology, we have ERGs for employees of diverse sexuality and cultural backgrounds, and/or have additional needs. The nuanced experiences of intersectional groups ensure that the unique stories of women are heard. Our reach at Cheetah Digital is global, and we have a passion for developing leaders in the company, and also in their particular region of the world.

Ultimately, our ERGs help drive relationships for those who seek mentorship from leaders who share similar paths. We know that powerful mentorship is rooted in more than being a teacher. Genuine and impactful mentorships involve commitment and action, where the mentor is dedicated to helping others shine and succeed: “I have traveled this path, and I know the way to success. I’ll teach you the terrain.”
