New Champions Global Expert Mentoring (GEM) PrOJECT

One of the global programs of New Champions 5050 under the New Champions WIN (Womensphere Incubator Network) is the New Champions Global Expert Mentoring (GEM) Project.

Through the New Champions GEM Project, we will be able to offer one-to-many mentoring, co-curricular education, leadership/innovation development, and training to thousands of women and girls in 2017, and eventually towards 1 million women and girls by 2020. 

The New Champions GEM Project starts with sharing the expertise of GEMs who are members of the Foundation communities of the World Economic Forum – Young Global Leaders, Young Scientists, Tech Pioneers, Schwab Social Entrepreneurs, and Global Shapers.

Starting late August, New Champions GEMs (Global Expert Mentors) will share knowledge, insight, wisdom, and expertise along the following content areas, starting with reaching girls, women, and educators in secondary schools, colleges, universities, and graduate schools:

  • Leadership, management, entrepreneurship, innovation, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & design, mathematics)
  • Global Goals for Sustainable Development - as part of the GLOBAL CODEFEST, GLOBAL ARTFEST, and GLOBAL VIDEOFEST, and beyond
  • Coding & Data Science, Art & Design, Video & Filmmaking – as part of the GLOBAL CODEFEST, GLOBAL ARTFEST, and GLOBAL VIDEOFEST

New Champions GEMs include the following, coming from the World Economic Forum communities of Young Global Leaders, Young Scientists, Tech Pioneers, Schwab Social Entrepreneurs, and Global Shapers:
