Well done to our members Alison Hinds and Celia Collymore!
They had the opportunity to participate as Speakers and Global Leaders in the BPW Korea Global Mentorship Program during the 2014 BPW International Congress. They were alongside a diverse group of women and professionals to mentor and inspire about 100 high school and middle school girls from across Jeju Island through. This was a collaboration between Girl Power and Jeju Business and Professional Women (BPW), Korea Club. BPW is an international organization with the mission of providing guidance to empower women in the workplace, marketplace, and community. Girl Power is a volunteer organization that promotes professional development for female students in South Korea, started by two Fulbright teachers in Jeju-si, Ginger Whitesell and Vika Safarian.
Each speaker had five mintes to motivate and inspire along the theme of dream discovery and career development. Shortly thereafter the program transitioned into small group mentoring sessions and activities to assist students in identifying obstacles to their dreams and ways to overcome them. Our members had a wonderful time sharing and making a difference!
