In 2016, GTF paired 14 mentors with 14 mentees, that represented nine countries and four continents. GTF mentees were provided with a personalized development opportunity to address individual learning needs. This opportunity helped them over a period of eleven months to develop new skills and expertise, and to enhance, enrich and expand their professional and personal perspectives. GTF mentors helped mentees also with confidence-building in dealing with challenges and issues. They also assisted with advice on career development and personal growth as well as their networking opportunities.
