YWLC Mentorship 2020: A Quick Update and Recap
Since the close of registration on 16 May, we have received over 180 applications from young women across seven sectors (Finance, Government, Law, Sustainable Energy, Fashion, Arts and STEM) this year.
This is a whopping 36% increase from 2019!
Over the next few weeks, the Mentorship subcommittee will be reviewing applications and contacting shortlisted applicants. This also signals the end of the 2019 cycle of the Mentorship Programme, with a total of 74 mentees and 52 mentors.
Hear more from our mentors and mentees on their 9-month experience:
Ms Wong Jia Yun, Chairperson of YWLC’s 6th Executive Committee & her mentor, Ms Stacey N Lacy, Managing Director, Head of Operations & Technology at Citibank N.A. Singapore
Ms Kelley Wong, Vice-Chairperson of YWLC’s 6th Executive Committee & her mentor, Ms Chong Siak Ching, Chief Executive Officer at National Gallery Singapore
If you’ve missed this cycle, you can catch it again next year! Applications for the next cycle will open in the 2nd quarter of 2021.
