Fortune convened more than 100 U.S.-based women leaders plus 33 rising-star women from the developing world for last week’s “Most Powerful Women Evening With…” in New York City. Some of the best photos from the dinner gathering come from one of our guests: Kathi Lutton, who heads global litigation for the law firm Fish and Richardson.

Lutton, who lives in Silicon Valley, is a powerhouse in multiple ways. She’s a mom and a marathoner and , not least of all, a mentor to one of those 33 women who participated in this year’s Fortune-U.S. State Department Global Women Leaders Mentoring Partnership.

This program, which we launched in 2006, pairs emerging women leaders in developing countries with U.S.-based leaders who attend the annual
Most Powerful Women Summit. Besides Lutton — who paired with a couple of Google’s

senior women execs to co-mentor a Haitian entrepreneur named Gaelle Pierre — the top women at such companies as Xerox

, Wal-Mart

, American Express

, Goldman Sachs

, Exxon-Mobil

, and Fortune‘s owner Time Warner

participate in this program.

It’s all about sharing ideas and learning from one another across the globe. Kudos to the mentors, the mentees, and Lutton, whose terrific photos I’m happy to share here…
