Women in Agile Mentoring

Back in March, I expressed how much I enjoyt taking part in mentoring initiatives. The one I participated in over the last few months was unique because it was specifically for women. With my experience in IT since 2006, I understand what it's like to be the only woman in the room during company meetings. I also know the feeling of being the first female Scrum Master or the only female manager in the company. That's why, not for the first time, I enthusiastically support and encourage initiatives like this.

Returning to the topic, from the end of February to July 2023, I had the privilege of being a mentor in a program organized by Women in Agile.

Women in Agile is a non-profit organization dedicated to recruiting, networking, promoting and supporting the work of outstanding women in the Agile community. The purpose of the mentoring program itself is twofold:

  • First: to educate women as mentors who have already developed their careers as Agile leaders in enterprises, 
  • Second: to build mentor-mentee relationships that help the Women in Agile community unleash its full potential.

It is worth adding that the mentoring program was implemented thanks to the support and generosity ICAgile


This was the second edition of the program, and I know that more are being prepared. I encourage you to take part in it! Of course, there are many benefits. I can show you the following two:

  1. It was the first time I had the opportunity to receive so much support from other mentors in the program. Once a month we met for facilitated “Power Hour” sessions. During these meetings, we could share our impressions, but above all, get to know ourselves - and each of us was practically from a different place in the world. We also learned from each other and discussed. To be honest, for me the name of this session - Power Hour - perfectly reflected its meaning, because that's exactly how I always felt after it - energized, listened to, satisfied, motivated.
  2. My mentee! We were a perfect match. She, at the beginning of the journey of creating the Agile Coaching department - me, after two adventures of this type and in the middle of the third one. At first, she absorbed from me, then I listened to her with interest. It couldn't be better! 

I can't believe how quickly these five months have passed! Once again, I encourage you to take part in this initiative, because it is really worth it.

I am passionate about fostering the growth of others through knowledge sharing. If you’re a Scrum Master, Product Owner, or Agile leader seeking an experienced mentor, I encourage you to reach out! Let’s schedule a mentoring session and embark on a journey of accelerated learning together.
