Young Professionals Mentorship Program Recap and Other Updates

Thank you to everyone who attended our Young Professionals Meeting last month! It was a great event and we got so many amazing ideas from you all on how to move forward with the Mentorship Program! So far we have over 120 sign-ups!

During September, we will work to finalize the logistics of the Mentorship Program and begin the process of matching mentors to mentees.

Our next meeting will be on 3 October. More information on that meeting will be shared in future emails.

We are also excited to support some of our Young Professional members who put together a video about our YP program and the Beijing+25 campaign! Watch the video here and check out their website.
