Our 2024 Mentoring Programme

We are delighted to have launched our 7th WILHK Mentoring Programme.


The programme is running from February 2024 to November 2024, including one-on-one mentoring, an ice breaking and matching event, a kick-off and orientation event, two specially-tailored skills workshops (based on participants’ workshop topic preferences) and networking gatherings. 


Welcome to our WILHK Mentoring Programme Class of 2024!

What our alumni say:


 “I am now much focused at work and I now take the initiative to have more catch-ups with my partners and to ask for support from them.

our 2021 mentee


I learnt the importance of empathy and striving for things I want. I also started to build up confidence in myself.

our 2021 mentee


I was pleasantly surprised about how open people were to reach out outside of their mentor-mentee relationship to others within the Programme.

Mentoring also works in the “reverse”, where I as mentor get so much inspiration and learn so much from my mentee.
