The wax print specialist, Vlisco, has organised a mentorship programme for 15 aspiring female leaders. The mentorship programme is designed to empower and support aspiring female leaders.
Vlisco has long been a brand that not only creates beautiful fabrics but one that inspires and champions the role of women in society. This led to the launch of the Vlisco Women’s Mentoring Programme in 2019, with the aim of impacting the lives of young Ghanaian women by providing guidance on developing key skills in a variety of relevant areas.
A total of 15 young women, mentees from 2019 and 2020 Women`s Month Editions, enjoyed a 2- hour mentoring session with Rev Dr Joyce Aryee, Executive Director of Salt and Light Ministries, at the newly refurbished Accra City Hotel to provide an interactive learning experience. Topic covered was: ‘The World of work, business and family, post COVID’ followed by a question and answer`s session.
Vlisco Marketing Director Rev. Stephen Badu elaborated on the mission to impact the lives of young Ghanaian women. “Our aim is to inspire these talented and ambitious women to achieve their professional goals through insights from professional mentors. Aside these sessions and considering the coronavirus pandemic, we encourage our mentees to make strong use of all the social media tools which are largely available to get the maximum guidance from their various mentors.”
