The Ministry of Equality has held induction sessions for the mentors and mentees of the Women’s Mentorship Pilot Programme. These sessions were held for mentors and mentees that have been matched ahead of the start of the programme.

Marlene Dalli, Policy Development Officer at the Department for Equality, delivered the sessions.

Minister for Equality, the Hon. Samantha Sacramento, MP, said, “I am delighted that the Women’s Mentorship Programme will begin imminently. The programme has generated a great deal of interest and the response to both induction sessions has been very positive and enthusiastic. I would like to express my gratitude to all involved in the programme but particularly to mentors who will be giving back to the local community in order for mentees to maximize their professional potential. This cross-sector and cross-gender mentoring programme which is the first of its kind in Gibraltar, should help to ensure that there is greater gender diversity in the workplace, especially in positions of leadership and management.
