The FWA Advancing Women in Finance (FWA-AWF) Mentoring Programme has been running since 2011, and was awarded the AWARE New Initiative Award in 2013.
In 2020, we received sponsorship from Seeds of Change Fund, supported by the Ministry of Social and Family Development and administered by the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations. The funding has been used to develop the Programme manuals for the Mentors and Mentees, and other resource materials to support the mentoring journey.
The programme is designed for mid-career women in the banking and finance industry, who seek guidance in professional and personal development from senior industry executives outside their organisations. To date, we have successfully mentored over 100 mentees, many of whom remain connected with their Mentors.
Here are some of our 2023 Mentors, made up of senior executives in the Singapore finance industry, many of whom are also Male and Female Champions of FWA.
