|Thabile and her mentor, Fatima Omar|
Thabile recently signed up as a mentee with the Women in MICE (Meetings Incentives Conferences Exhibitions) Mentorship Program. The process started at an Orientation Day where mentees and mentors got together to get a clear understanding of the roles expected of both a mentor and mentee. This was followed by a keynote address by Zipho Sikhakhane, a successful speaker, writer, facilitator, and investor who has given a TEDx Talk in the US – herself a believer in the value of mentoring relationships.
There was then a speed networking session where each mentee got to meet with all the mentors so that they could get a better feel for who they would prefer to have assigned as a mentor. Thabile was delighted that Fatima Omar was her selected mentor and they then completed a “planning our relationship” document and signed a code of conduct.
"I am also always striving to do my job as best I can and improve all the time while learning." says Thabile and I am hoping that with Fatima’s experience that she will guide me to advance in my personal and professional growth. I am excited about this journey as it is very important that I always give my all to everything I do and I look forward to having Fatima enable me to grow.
We wish Thabile the best of luck with the program!
