chyeneoMentors are the x-factor in any leadership program and LeadWomen’s decision to pair potential talent with

qualified leaders make all the difference in the WIL journey. The experience shared shines a light into areas

Testimonials from Past Participants

  • Penny Yaw,

    I gained valuable insight through the WIL MY program. I have learnt that staying in my comfort zone is the easier and safer option but may not be best for me.  A key takeaway from my relationship with my mentor is the importance to push the boundaries beyond my comfort zone. Our conversations were thought provoking and challenging, empowering me with the confidence to move forward.
