What a way to start 2024! It was a delight to see our cohort discovering what their professional future could look like and how to optimise this journey. The extended networking and coaching sessions really helped to forge new relationships and created an opportunity to do deeper personal work.
We would like to thank EY for their gracious hospitality. Many thanks to the panelists of the evening, Shalini Mishra, Chamika Ruwangi Kaduruwana , Cassandra Simpson and Lynette Nam for the insightful career guidance and their words of wisdom and encouragement.
These workshops wouldn’t be possible without the senior women from various professions and industries who volunteer their time and commitment to be part of our cohort’s career journey for the evening. Last night, we welcomed Aashka Tibrewal Anjalee Martin Annie W.Y. Cheng, Jane Hodgskin Jovy Wong Kate Wood Katie Mok Divya Ahluwalia Heda Bayron Kamni Bharwani Karah Howard Mar-Loes Mantoua Neelam Hiranandani Niru Vishwanath Penny Barsha Petunia Kingsley and Tahira Yousaf
