Levo League, a social network for Gen Y women to build their careers, kicked off the launch of a new mentorship platform with debut guest mentor Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook. It was announced Thursday, April 4.
“What social media gives us is the power to do things like Levo League is doing. It gives us the power to launch something where you can ask a mentor a question, and you… can share those responses with everyone else,” stated Sheryl Sandberg.
Levo League’s mentorship platform offers a Q&A between Levo users and featured mentors, and facilitates connections based on compatibility.
Users can search for specific advice by category, and curate their activity feeds by following featured mentors and other Levo members.
“Levo is giving mentorship a makeover by granting users direct access to experts across industries, both online and offline, that they would not normally have access to,” says Amanda Pouchot, co-founder and chief community officer at Levo League.
Launched in 2012 by Caroline Ghosn and Amanda Pouchot, Levo League encourages women to build a social network devoted to career development.
