The BRICS Chamber has Launched a Mentoring Program for Women Entrepreneurs and Professionals

BRICS CCI WE, the women’s vertical of The BRICS Chamber of Commerce and Industry, has introduced the BRICS CCI WE Global Women Leadership Programme for women professionals and entrepreneurs from BRICS nations and other friendly countries. The program, featuring a mentorship cum learning module, aims to enhance women’s leadership skills, foster global connections, and provide insights from professionals and global leaders. Approximately 25 women professionals and entrepreneurs, with a minimum of two years of work experience, will be part of the three-month hybrid program with weekly sessions. Successful participants will receive certification from BRICS CCI.

The program, starting in December 2023, will be held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Applicants will be charged an introductory fee of $120. Among the mentors in the program are Kalpana Sharma (Former Additional Secretary, Lok Sabha, Parliament of India), Dr. Aisha Bin Bishr (Director General of Smart Dubai Office), Nicole Nguyen (Co-founder of APAC DAO, Vietnam), Jenny Chen (Founder & CEO, A&J Consulting International), Noopur Jhunjhunwala (Trustee & Co-founder, Changeinkk), Nidhi Goyal (Managing Partner- Avinav Consulting), and more.

Ruby Sinha, President of BRICS CCI WE, stated, “The BRICS WE Global Women Leadership Programme signifies BRICS CCI’s commitment to advancing women’s leadership in the global business landscape. It aims to offer participants access to world-class mentorship, training, and resources. We invite aspiring women leaders to join us on this empowering journey of growth, knowledge, and inspiration.”

The program assumes significance in the context of the government’s vision to boost women entrepreneurship. However, as of July 2023, out of over 2 crore businesses registered, only 19.43 percent were owned by women, according to data shared in the Rajya Sabha by Bhanu Pratap Singh Verma, Minister of State in the MSME Ministry.
