IAA kick starts mentorship plan for women

MUMBAI: International Advertising Association (IAA) brings up a specialised mentorship program for women which will help them to progress and also empower them to climb the corporate ladder by giving them the right guidance and mentorship by industry leaders.

She said, “The idea of encouraging someone to achieve their true potential is a very fulfilling thought and that is exactly what this programme achieves to do. We have shortlisted 23 women who will be receiving mentorship from some of the leading industry experts.
