About Global Thinkers Program: 

Global Thinkers Forum (GTF) is a global platform bringing together a diverse network of thought leaders and creating meaningful networking and conversations around global challenges and trends. GTF’s mission focuses on three areas:

  • Fostering accountability in leadership
  • Promoting women’s empowerment
  • Creating opportunities for young people to develop


GTF Mentees

  • Are provided with a personalized development opportunity to address individual learning needs.

  • Will be helped by Global Mentors over a period of eight months to develop new skills and expertise, and to enhance, enrich and expand their professional and personal perspectives.

  • Will also be helped with confidence-building in dealing with challenges and issues.

  • Will be assisted with advice on career development and personal growth as well as their networking opportunities.

As a result of this process, GTF mentees will ‘graduate’ far better equipped to set goals, to aim high and achieve them!


  • You are eligible to apply for ‘Telemachus’ if you are a young individual between 18-29. 
  • ‘Athena’ is for MENA women above the age of 22. If you fall into the category, please feel free to apply.
  • For the Athena MENA program, applicants with fluent command of English, who have completed a Bachelor’s degree or have equally-relevant professional experience of a minimum of 5 years will be prioritized.
  • For both programs they expect their candidates to manifest motivation, commitment, and critical thinking skills.


If you are selected then, you need to be aware of the following:

  1. You should enter this relationship with an open mind.
  2. You need to be candid.
  3. The relationship and everything you will share with your mentor will remain confidential.
  4. Always be punctual and respectful of your mentor’s time.
  5. Avoid defensive reactions to feedback. 
  6. The advice you will receive is meant to offer you perspective diversity and skills building and is by no means a certificate, a qualification, or a degree.

Application Process

If you would like to join the program

  • Please write a cover letter explaining what you would like to achieve with this mentoring program.
