On August 30, 2016 we welcomed our newest mentors and mentees to the WiFA Mentor-Mentee Programme at our Summer Drinks and Dessert gathering. The event was filled with lively discussion and scrumptious desserts. Twenty existing and new members got together to discuss their experiences and expectations of the MMP in the coming year.
Josianne Robb and Danielle Roman, WiFA mentor-mentee pair from previous years shared the keys to their successful and mutually beneficial mentoring relationship. Prepared, precise, openly challenging the definition of success were among the many valuable elements of their relationship which helped Danielle progressed from Associate to Partner in her career while becoming a mother of three within four years. Members then shared their unique and interesting journeys as women in finance thus far. The event was followed by a networking session around delectable LGB cakes, Happy Cow ice-cream, gorgeous candies and matching wine.
