Our Mentor ME scheme with Mastercard has been one of our most popular initiatives so far with hundreds of women initially applying and thousands engaging with the Mentees' stories through our social media. If you missed it, you can read all about it here.
Since they started their six month programme back at the end of January, our ladies have made some tangible progress with their CVs, attitudes and approaches to re-entering the job market. Several have now had job interviews both with and outside of Mastercard and one of our ladies is now pregnant with her third daughter - congratulations, JoMarie!
We promised we'd keep up with our seven successful applicants and after a Coffee Morning Catch Up recently, our Co-Founder Helen McGuire managed to grab a couple of them to speak briefly about the insights they'd gained so far. Take a look at the videos and feel free to leave your questions or comments for our ladies just below. We'll have a more in-depth catch up once we reach the half way point of the 6 months course.
