Myanmar Women’s Mentoring Network Event

Myanmar Women’s Mentoring Network hosted an event sponsored by Partnership for Change Myanmar at Phandeeyar last Thursday, October 13th. Over 80 women attended this hugely successful event!

These vibrant conversations ranged from topics like gender discrimination and harassment to improving work/ life balance and understanding the different leadership styles of managers.

The energy of the room was contagious and it was incredibly inspiring to see all of these dedicated women come out to support each other in their professional paths. The next event will be held in December 2016 and we hope to see you there!
