Reach Mentoring is the first non-profit organisation dedicated to the mentoring and leadership of women professionals in the Middle East. Establishing its second cohort in collaboration with the Bahrain-based consultancy FinMark Communications at the Mentorship Forum (Bahrain) on the 25th November, MANAMA welcomes a further 20 women into the reach program with a seasoned group of mentors committed to guiding their career progression. Following on from the success of the first cohort that was established in Bahrain in 2018, saw 14 women professionals across a number of sectors successfully complete the program. The program provides mentorship to a new cohort of professional women and will equip them with the skills needed to succeed in the Middle East workplace.
Founding Board Member of Reach Mentoring Racha Alkhawaja said, ‘We are delighted to establish the second cohort of the Reach Mentoring programme in Bahrain, following a successful launch last year. While the region is making huge steps towards empowering women in the workplace, mentorship still plays a key role in the corporate world, helping to bridge the gender divide. Gender disparity in the workplace is a reality across the world, and means that it can be a lonely place for women, whether at the start of their careers or at the pinnacle of their success – our aim is to empower women with the guidance and support of a trusted mentor.’
