The ZNCC Women’s desk supported by the Chamber Trade Sweden will be kick-starting the Mentorship in Practise Class of 2015 on Friday May29. This comes after the first group which enrolled last year will be graduating at the end of this year.
The graduation will take place at a dinner being hosted by ZNCC and Chamber Trade Sweden.
The Class of 2015 is expected to have a group 20 Mentees and will run for the next 12 Months.
The MiP initiative was created through the Women in Enterprise Conference and Awards (WECA) platform which realised the necessity of having established business women and female corporate leaders to have dialogue with those who want to achieve.
It is from this background that the ZNCC Women’s Desk started a formal structured and highly regarded mentorship program in 2014.
The main objectives of this initiative are to;
– Build the female Business Brand for entrepreneurs, executives and investors. Our goal is to advise, inspire and connect a global & local community of ambitious entrepreneurial women specifically on their business needs. The program is all about “killer advice and killer contacts!”
– Build business and professional leaders who want to make a mark on history
– Strengthen and sustain dialogue between young, aspiring future leaders and people like you who have seen it all.
The mentors for this MiP program are basically women who have achieved success in business, admired, viewed as role model, have knowledge to pass on, contribute to the cause of women economic empowerment and believe women should help each other for sustainable economic development of Zimbabwe.
Professor Hope Sadza, Sandy Robertson, Elizabeth Magaya and Angela Mashanyare are some the mentors for this program.
