The Ministry of Equality have said that they would like to remind the public that expressions of interest for the current cycle of the Women’s Mentorship Programme continue to be invited.
To date, the Women’s Mentorship Programme has been extremely successful and has run for two cycles. The Programme’s success is evident from the high number of returning mentors and, similarly, from the number of mentees who have gone on to become mentors. The opportunities the Programme offers are therefore wide-reaching and long-lasting and participants are clearly invested in both the short-term and long-term benefits of this initiative.
The final deadline for applications for the third cycle of the Women’s Mentorship Programme is Friday 24th September.
Minister for Equality, the Hon Samantha Sacramento MP, said: “I am delighted by the interest registered for the third cycle of the Women’s Mentorship Programme so far. After so many uncertain and difficult months due to the Pandemic I am heartened by the imminent start of the third cycle of this Programme. For many people, the world of work has changed dramatically over the last year and this Programme offers mentees the opportunity for continued professional growth and support. Past mentors and mentees have related their very positive experiences of the Programme and therefore I would like to strongly encourage women who believe they could benefit from the Programme to register their interest. Our mentors, who are professionals in their respective fields, have a host of skills and a wealth of expertise which will be highly beneficial to the professional development of our future mentees. This is a wonderful opportunity that I hope many potential mentees will be encouraged to embrace.”
