PROGRAM FOR YOUNG WOMEN TO FIGHT THE CONFIDENCE GAP THROUGH FLASH MENTORING
Starting November 2023, Kérastase, the leading professional luxury haircare brand worldwide, is launching Power Talks: a three-pillar, impact-driven program designed for women (aged 18 to 29) and delivered by women.
The program’s aim is to help young women forge greater confidence, develop career-advancing skills, leverage meaningful networks, and ultimately uplift other women around them. The initiative is co-created with the British Chamber of Commerce in the Czech Republic, dedicated to fostering UK-Czech business relations, empowering women through well-established mentoring programs since 2011, and passionately advancing gender diversity.
At Kérastase, we believe that a woman doesn’t just want stronger hair, she wants to be a stronger woman. Our mission goes beyond hair care and it felt natural to work on fighting the confidence gap, to keep on expanding a woman’s potential.
POWER TALKS IS BUILT AROUND THREE KEY PILLARS
Young women to grow their confidence, so they can define and achieve success on their own terms.
All women in their journey towards confidence through powerful, confidence-building events and content featuring inspiring female figures.
Kérastase employees to fight unconscious bias and foster self-confidence in the workplace.
FOCUS ON FLASH MENTORING
WOMEN WHO HAD A MENTOR ARE 74% MORE LIKELY TO BE VERY SELF-CONFIDENT.
YOUTH WITH A MENTOR ARE 130% MORE LIKELY TO HOLD LEADERSHIP POSITIONS.
Together with BCC, Kérastase will implement “flash mentoring” programming, based on the idea that one powerful conversation can have a profound and enduring impact.
Our approach will pair mentors and mentees together for short-term, targeted, skills-based mentoring. A flash mentoring experience will typically be conducted through a one-to-two model, contained within a single structured session that will allow mentees to more quickly acquire the kinds of experience that lead to confidence.
