Gender equality is often a casualty of microaggression and discrimination in the workplace. To promote parity and eliminate bias, watchmaker Zenith created the DreamHers platform, which brings together a cadre of accomplished women from various fields to share their insights at multiple global events.
Its Singapore leg last year, for example, highlighted the partnership with Susan G Komen, the world’s leading breast cancer organisation and the largest funder of breast cancer research outside of the US government.
This year, the manufacture is taking a step further by introducing the DreamHers Mentoring Programme, a rare opportunity for women to receive guidance and gain insider knowledge from three inspiring figures who have made their mark in different professions. They will take on the roles of mentors or even life coaches.
“This is an exciting new adventure we’re embarking on. We can share their unique experience in a constructive way, [which will] give people the confidence and guidance to reach for their own stars,” said Zenith CEO Julien Tornare.
The brand will select three lucky participants to spend an enriching one-on-one session with professional tennis star Anett Kontaveit, violin virtuoso Esther Abrami and the formidable Extreme E race driver Catie Munnings, daughter of former rally driver Chris Munnings.
These leading exemplars will impart valuable life lessons such as ways to stay focused, tips to stand out while remaining true to your values and strategies to succeed in a male-dominated sport or activity.
