Mentoring young people – my joy in life


Nothing gives me more pleasure than mentoring young people. I do it for my Larraine Segil Scholars,  now numbering 13 around the world – here the site is that features each of them – with video interviews of most too!

I am also a mentor for some of the over one hundred  Scholars so appointed by the Committee of 200 Global Women’s CEO’s group – ( I am personally mentoring about 10 in So Cal and 11 in Israel and Dubai).

In addition I am blessed to be on the Entrepreneurs Board of The Price Center, of UCLA ‘s Anderson School of Business and so get to meet with about 16 young men and women MBA students annually and provide a little mentoring. They come from all over the world – China, Japan, India, Canada, Latin America and South Korea – as well as from all over the USA.

All these young people give me great hope for the future of the world – they are sensitive, sensible, smart and oh-so-hard-working. I hope to give them some wisdom and to help them on their ways. They impress me so much. I feel honored to have the privilege to be of value to each of them.

I am immensely grateful for the Google and Skype technology that enables me to interact with these young people wherever they are in the world on a quarterly basis -as well as the local ones whom I meet with face to face four times a year as a group and then individually as needed.

I learn as much from them as they do from me.

If you can, why don’t you try to do the same? There are always young people in your community who will benefit from knowing you – and you have so much to offer!

Below is a picture of the 7 young women C200 Scholars at Technion University in Haifa Israel -with C200 members behind them – and beneath them also with C200 members, are the three we chose from Tel Aviv University. Below that is a short video where I describe what the mentoring does for these young women. ENJOY!
