Frequently Asked Questions
What we do
1. 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.
2. What can you do with our mentorship?
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!
3. How will a mentorship help me with my problems? What output should I expect?
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.
4. Why WomenWorks?
We connect you with a diverse lineup of mentors: from C-level professionals, consultants, entrepreneurs, life coaches, financial analysts, marketing experts, communication specialists, public policy analysts, lawyers, architects, journalists, counselors, and so on. Each of them has over 5 years of work experience in reputable companies, which gives them knowledge like no other in their respective industries and roles.

Our programs are risk-free. If any of our mentees are not satisfied with their mentorship experience with us, we are able to provide refunds on a case by case basis.
WomenWorks Service:
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 this 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 - get to know each other and decide on a 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. What do we discuss in mentorships? Is there a set curriculum?
For 1:1 mentorships, the curriculum depends on your specific needs for the particular session. In case you’re still indecisive, we also have Themed Mentorship Packages where we set the goals for you!

For Growth Circle, there is a curriculum set by the mentors.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. When will my mentoring sessions be conducted?
This depends on your mentor’s availability. Please arrange directly with your mentor.
7. 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! :)
8. 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 :)
WomenWorks Service:
Growth Circle
Growth Circles are group mentorships (5-10 mentees) that are designed around specific topics, such as entrepreneurship, personal branding, Masters preparations, etc. Unlike 1:1 mentorships, Growth Circles have a set curriculum, which provides structure and allows mentees to keep track of their learning process.
1. Who is this best for?
mentees who are looking for in-depth knowledge on certain themes
mentees who need curriculum and goal tracking to help them
mentees who are looking to connect with like-minded peers
2. How does it work?
Sign up (pick between full package or Lite package) and complete payment
We wait until your Growth Circle has been filled
Once we have reached the quota, we will send you the schedule and your peer’s profiles
On the D-day, get to know each other and learn from your peers’ experience as you go through this mentorship as a circle
Complete assignments together and check on each other’s progress as you go
3. How is a Growth Circle different from ordinary webinars or online classes?
Unlike webinars or online classes which tend to be a one-way street, Growth Circles are intended to create an interactive learning experience between you, your peers, and your mentor. Our group mentorship format allows you to both learn from your mentor and trade experiences with your peers.
4. When will my Growth Circle start?
The schedule and conferencing link will be provided once the minimum quota (4-5 mentees) is fulfilled. Until then, wait for further updates from us!
5. Which mentor will I be matched with in the Growth Circle? Can I switch?
You will be matched with the mentor who will be hosting the Growth Circle. This also means that you cannot switch mentors.
6. Will I be given certificates and class materials?
Certificates and class materials are only available for those purchasing the full package. Participants of the Lite package will still get assignments or homework sheets for their session, but not a certificate or the full class materials.
WomenWorks Service:
Masterclass
Our Masterclass is an interactive workshop on specific topics, guided by our mentors. The difference between Masterclass and Growth Circle is that a Masterclass is a one-off activity (similar to webinars), while Growth Circle consists of several continuous sessions.
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

Referral
WomenWorks referral is a program for our mentees to be able to give discounts to their friends on their first mentorship. The mentees will also get the same amount of discount on their next mentorship session for every referral code used.
1. How does it work?
Mentees who have finished their first mentorship session will get an email from us with a unique referral code and Instagram Story templates. Mentees can then share their referral code (preferably to share in their Instagram story). The received referral code can then be used in this form.



For every referral code used in an application, both referrers and referees will get up to 20% discount on their next mentorship session.
2. How do I refer a friend?
If you have at least finished your first mentorship session, you can refer a friend in our Mentee Experience Feedback Form by providing their name and email address. We will then send an email to the friends you have referred. Alternatively, you can also share your unique referral code to your friends and peers directly.
3. How is the discount applied on the mentorship prices?
If you book multiple sessions, your first session will get 20% off, and your second session will get 15% off. Third session and above will be in full price.
4. Can I use more than 1 referral code in my application?
Unfortunately, no. You can only use 1 referral code in 1 mentorship application.
5. Can I get cumulative discount if I can refer more than 1 friend?
Unfortunately, no. Since the referral code is assigned per user, you will get the same amount of discount even if you refer multiple friends. However, your discount can immediately be applied to your next booking!
6. Which program can I use the referral discount on?
You can use the referral discount in ALL of WomenWorks programs: both the 1:1 mentorships and Growth Circles.
