Young Women's Mentoring Workshops

Our Young Women's Mentoring Workshops run throughout the year and provide opportunities for young women to gain insights and learnings from other women who are experts in their field.

Our workshops are fun, engaging and feature a line-up of amazing women, each with their own unique journeys.

Through their story telling, young women can use what they have learnt to propel them to set and achieve their own goals.

Each workshop will also provide valuable networking opportunities.
