  • 19. New ways … The mentees are happy about the concept itself and what they profit from it (mentoring, events and network), especially the experience of being part of a new group - of having a new reference group. They meet a lot of Danish women and this strengthens their sense of female identity and shows them different opportunities of combining job and family life.
