Mentorship Resources

All of us, no matter where we are in our lives or careers, can benefit by strengthening and adding to our leadership skills. For women, leadership can take on new meaning as the distinct external and internal challenges pressure us in a myriad of ways. Developing and strengthening our skills as leaders is integral and beneficial for our personal and professional lives. At Peace X Peace, we believe in lifting the voices, perspectives, and contributions of women and in providing resources that may benefit them in their endeavors.

    Thank you for this letter. Originally when I came across your website it held meaning for me in the fact you represented a faction of women widely held by popular belief to be oppressed. While these women themselves feel themselves oppressed is another story. My hope was to enable connections that would liberate women on both sides by helping to aid in a network that could serve as a launch pad for the future, at least a forum where minds could come together in order to express concerns related to women’s issues. Being a Jewish woman I am not restricted by religion or personal beliefs in this regard. I have lived in various communities and had many, many friends with varying backgrounds. My interests in humans is what thrusts me into these kind of situations and therefore my education and training run similar threads. My hope was to weave a communication that could break traditional cannons by finding and cooperating along similarities. I think that is what women do best. By working together as women cohesively I believe that predisposed barriers will fall by the waysides along with other mislead popular beliefs. I cannot do this alone. Others must be willing to not only take those first steps but move forward with an open mind and willingness to learn from others. I come from a community of women that against all odds have challenged their own patriarchal community in order to live lives of worth developed by their own means. Many have suffered along the way and it has not been easy. The changes they have created have insured a future of freedoms for their own daughters. One thing they all seem to have in common is the fact that they as women hold that bond in solidarity.
