Women remain underrepresented in the Dutch labor market. About half of the women in the Netherlands are not financially independent. That percentage is even higher for women with a refugee background. Many of these women would like to work, but sometimes it is not easy to make this possible. That is why EY is offering a mentor program for talented women with a refugee background.
About the mentor program
Selected candidates are matched to a professional from the Women’s Network of EY, who functions as a mentor and coach during the 4-months program. During the program you and your mentor work together to increase your chances on the labor market. The mentors share their knowledge, skills, and professional network. In addition, your mentor can give you personal advice, and you can contact her with questions about everything that has to do with working in the Netherlands. At the same time, the mentor can of course also learn a lot from you.
What do we expect from you?
- You are a woman and you have a status or a W document.
- You have an open, proactive attitude, are eager to learn and want to share information with your mentor.
- You are motivated to participate. You make time for the online kickoff with all participants. In addition, you make time for an (online) appointment with your mentor once a week.
- You will need a computer (with camera) and internet to video call.
Register quickly for this program and make sure that your CV has been uploaded. You can register until October 20. If you have been selected, we expect you on the 10th of November at the kickoff.
