As we wrap up the celebrations of Woman’s Month, it is the perfect moment to reflect on the significance of women in leadership and the crucial role we play as mentors to support and nurture future leaders.
Empowering the next generation of leaders transcends gender; it’s about fostering meaningful relationships that break boundaries, allowing mentees to acquire practical skills, gain insights, and develop strategies to navigate complex challenges with resilience.
Over the years I have been most fortunate to experience the true power of mentorship. Through organisations such as BPESA and Endeavor, I have witnessed it’s transformative effects. It’s incredibly important for me to return the favour and pay it forward to the upcoming women in the BPO sector.
Diversity and inclusivity are vital in leadership roles. Women, in particular, bring a unique perspective and strength, enriching decision-making processes and driving innovation. As mentors, women leaders unlock the full potential of their mentees, cultivating a dynamic environment where growth and development flourish.
Mentorship wields significant power in cultivating talent, providing aspiring leaders with hands-on experience and building the confidence needed to excel. Through sharing wisdom and experiences, women mentors instil empowerment and resilience, paving the way for the next generation to challenge norms, break barriers, and make a profound impact in their fields.
At CallForce, we are a 100% woman-owned organisation that prioritises the importance of women in the workplace. With over 70% of our workforce being women, we recognise the profound impact they have on shaping our organisation and the industry as a whole.

Over the years of mentorship, I’ve realised that its effects extend far beyond individual growth; it strengthens the fabric of our organisation, fostering a culture of collaboration and mutual support. As women leaders, we understand the importance of creating an environment where all team members feel valued, heard, and empowered to contribute fully.
I encourage all leaders, regardless of gender, to embrace the role of mentorship. Together, we can build a future where the next generation of leaders thrives, where diversity is celebrated, and where innovation leads to transformative growth.
I am immensely proud of the women leaders within our industry who actively embrace mentorship and set an example for future generations. Let us continue to support and uplift one another, fostering a culture where mentorship is an inherent part of our journey towards success.
Let’s drive the commitment to foster relationships with future leaders, imparting valuable knowledge, and empowering mentees to make informed decisions aligned with growth and development. Together, we can shape a brighter future for all.
