What is mentorship?
Mentorship is a relationship where a person with experience and expertise (a ‘mentor’) passes their knowledge down to a more junior or less experienced person (a ‘mentee’). Mentorship is a two-way process: the mentee comes with a set of goals they want to consult in the session, and the mentor brings her knowledge and insights to help the mentee achieve them.
1. What can I get out of a mentorship session?
Consult your career plans, business idea, or any self-development plans; Gather insights on your dream company, job, or industry
Get tips and tricks based on insider perspectives
Get practical advice to help you solve your challenges
Know what steps or resources you need to achieve your goals
Connect with women professionals who understand your problem
Find inspiration from our high-achieving mentors
and more!
2. How can a mentorship help me? What should I be expecting?
Mentorship allows you to get practical advice, insights, and perspectives from fellow women professionals who have gone through similar situations. Therefore, you can get a more realistic knowledge compared to what you get from reading books, doing online classes, etc.

The output expected from the sessions can vary from mentee to mentee. Some got insights on how to begin their first step, others got introduced to resources or people who can help them, etc. Therefore, mentees are highly encouraged to settle on their personal goals first before committing to a mentorship.
3. What is discussed in a mentorship? Is there a set curriculum?
The curriculum depends on your specific needs, which is why we need your help in providing detailed answers on the documents provided for your session. In case you’re still unsure, we also have Themed Mentorship Packages, where we help set the goals for you (you can also ask about this if you book a pre-mentorship session with our founding team!).
1:1 Mentorship
Our 1:1 mentorship connects one mentee and one mentor each to allow a learning experience tailored to their specific needs. From the mentor choice, number of sessions, to the curriculum and content, build a unique 1:1 mentorship experience based on your personal plans!
1. Who is a mentorship best for?
mentees who seek greater flexibility and personalization
mentees who want to connect individually with their dream mentor
anyone who wants to get a first taste of our mentorship program!
2. How does it work?
Sign up, complete payment, and submit your video profile
We assess your video profile and registration info to pick the most suitable mentor for your inquiries
We connect you with the mentor; go through introductions and decide on a session schedule
On the D-Day, you have the opportunity to consult with your mentor regarding your problems, ask questions, and learn from their experience
3. Can we choose our mentors, or will WomenWorks pick one for us?
Both are applicable. You can list your mentor preferences or request in our sign up form. If you do not list any preferences or leave the choice to our team, we will find the best match based on the inquiries given in the video.
4. If we book multiple 1:1 sessions, are we allowed to change our mentors midway?
Yes, you can. Our 1:1 mentorship allows you to either proceed with the same mentor for all sessions, or to choose different mentors based on your needs. However, we also want to help our mentors maximize their impact, so we recommend sticking with the same mentor as much as possible.
5. When will my mentoring sessions be conducted?
This depends on your mentor’s availability. Please arrange directly with your mentor.
6. Why do I need to send a video? Can I send my CV/written profile/etc. instead?
Your video profile will be our main reference in finding a mentor match. We will only proceed to the matching process once we have received your video profile. Our mentors also watch your video to get a glimpse of who you are and how to guide you, so please help them help you! :)
7. What happens if I cannot commit immediately to a mentorship after I have paid and sent my video? Am I allowed to reserve my sessions?
We ask that mentees respect the mentor’s time and commitment to the mentorship. While mentorship bookings do not expire, no-shows and mentees getting MIA makes a negative experience for our mentors. Hence, please always let us know whenever you have any difficulties committing to a mentorship at any time.

Our mentor allocations are ‘first come, first served’. Therefore, it is advised not to wait too long between your application and actually doing your mentorship, so you can get your desired mentor before they are allocated to another mentee :)
Our Masterclass is an interactive workshop on specific topics, guided by our mentors.
1. Who is this best for?
mentees who would like to know our mentors better before committing to a mentorship
mentees who want a shorter, yet equally sweet learning experience from experts
