Workshop: “Mentoring Among Women” at Our Nazareth Center for Peace Studies

Our center hosted the Women Peer Leaders Forum together with local women to discuss the topic of mentorship amongst women through a four-hour workshop. Over the course of that evening, 50 distinguished women and leaders in diverse fields participated in a workshop on mentorship. Women from around the world joined local participants in amplifying the importance of and greater need for mentoring amongst women.  The program began with our founder, Dr. Rula Khoury Mansour, introduction to the vision of the center, which started eight years ago. This was followed by worship time and a lecture by Dr. Ruth Padilla DeBorst about mentoring from a biblical perspective, looking at Elizabeth and Mary’s models. We also had table discussions on a variety of useful topics relating to mentoring, such as: the challenges and opportunities in mentoring; topics to be discussed in mentoring; the mentor’s characteristics; and the relationship between the mentor and mentee. Finally, we enjoyed a Middle Eastern meal and a great time of fellowship, where we heard very encouraging feedback regarding the workshop and enthusiasm towards the next step.
