Mentorship is instrumental in empowering women and girls to achieve their wildest dreams. Thus, this pillar provides a yearly mentorship program where we match young professionals with accomplished women of the diaspora. Both mentors and mentees benefit from this dual relationship-building process where strategic plans are mapped out to achieve mentees’ educational and professional goals.
Education creates access and pathways to financial freedom and true independence. Thus, we partner with educational, mental health, and entrepreneurial establishments to provide training and development to activate the personal and professional development of women and girls. We publish a monthly newsletter, WRAP TT Pulse, to share current events, achievements of women of the diaspora, best practices for business development, and scholarships and educational resources.
Networking & Communication
Effective networking provides community, building blocks, and pathways for women to grow personally, professionally, and financially. Women who excel at this skill are more confident in pursuing their goals. Thus, we offer a range of programs and events for women to have fun and collaborate while developing the skills to network effectively. Our signature event that we host on behalf of the Embassy of Trinidad and Tobago in DC is the International Women’s Day event.
We provide members seeking to grow personally and professionally access to our global network. Through our extensive database, we connect members with professionals in multifaceted fields and at all levels of the corporate ladder. We also manage the WRAP TT job board for those seeking career advancement. Finally, we provide professional development training on effective and persuasive communication to help members prepare for interviews, networking, and public speaking opportunities.
