Financial Women of San Francisco and KPMG Collaborate to Expand Mentoring

Mentorship can take many forms, but ultimately it has the power to positively impact a woman’s life and propel her career. While mentoring has been a foundational part of FWSF’s scholarship program, with mentors paired with each year’s scholarship recipients, FWSF believes in the transformative power of mentoring — regardless of where a member is in her career journey. Whether a member wants to be more effective in her current role, accelerate her advancement, or transition to a new role, FWSF wants to help its members be more successful.
