BSGI Mentor Workshop

Mentoring is not just beneficial for the mentees, but they are valuable for professional development and leadership skills for the mentors, which can open new career opportunities!

As part of BSGI program we are organizing a one-day fully online workshop that aims to provide valuable content with concrete tools and methods that can support mentors in their goals.
