Reverse mentoring helps bring the best women to the top. Even today, it is important to encourage young women and provide them with a female role model. Men still occupy the important leadership positions in the media, business and politics.
This is where our FeMentor platform comes in, empowering young women. Usually the mentor is the one who gives advice, in the case of FeMentor mentees get the opportunity to share their knowledge in return.With our USP: Reverse Mentoring FeMentor stands out from already existing mentoring programs.
Reverse Mentoring means, the young woman provides her mentor with individual knowledge e.g. about Generation-X-Y-Z. They provide valuable insights for YouTube, Instagram, IT and much more. The USP for us is the role reversal between mentor and mentee. The young women become mentors when it comes to social media, for example!As a visually influenced generation, the mentees offer their talents as photographers, designers or programmers in reverse.
Instead of money, knowledge flows, because knowledge is power. As a result, there is no disparity between mentor and mentee. The result is an exchange at eye level that is helpful to both. The appreciation of their knowledge gives the mentee self-confidence and the recognition that their knowledge represents added value in this society.

"I don't know any young female founders". A phrase I heard often before starting FeMentor. Well, now you know one. And hopefully soon many more. I myself have been writing since I was 14 as a journalist for the Berliner Zeitung and Funky from Funke Mediengruppe. At the age of 6 I started to gain experience on stage and in front of the camera.
After becoming an ambassador for the anti-bullying website "exclamo", I noticed who helped me the most. It was female mentors. Professionally and personally.
And it strengthened me that I could give something back to them.
Be it just giving them tips on how to deal with their teenage children (my advice: the monster phase passes - it just takes a lot of patience and love).
Unfortunately, not every young woman has this support. Be it for financial or social reasons. Thus FeMentor was born.
We are pretty, but also pretty strong, especially when we support each other.
The award winner in the "Leadership" category is 21-year-old journalist, social media expert and FeMentor founder Anastasia Barner. FeMentor is a young, innovative mentoring program for women. The concept is called "Reverse Mentoring".
Almost everyone knows the card game Uno. There is the "reverse card". Whoever lays it lets the other player make another move. I copied the principle when I founded FeMentor last year.
Social entrepreneurs are getting younger and younger, but they are mainly male. Reason enough to find out what drives young women like Anastasia Barner to tackle social problems with their business models.
Anastasia Barner is only 21 and already the founder of an innovative mentoring concept: FeMentor matches mentors with young women looking for advice in a specific industry. #girlssupportgirl at it's best!
She is just starting out with a mentoring network for young women and is in the final round of the Miss Berlin competition (prevailed among 7000 applicants): Anastasia Barner (20) from Mitte is now a self-confident young woman...
