The British Chamber of Commerce Taipei is proud to launch its first Women in Business Mentorship Programme. Over a six-month period, 30 women will form a dedicated support network for professional and personal development. 15 mentors and 15 mentees will be selected and paired based on what they want to achieve and meet regularly to work towards those goals.  The process will be assisted and supported by the BCCT Women in Business Committee.

The mentorship programme is one way that you can take tangible steps to building greater diversity in business by connecting and supporting women as Mentors, Mentees, and Sponsors.
