Chamber Event details
Tuesday 12 February
The Coca-Cola 5by20 Mentor and Business Community Support Evening will be held at Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce, Unit 37, City Quay, Camperdown Street, Dundee, DD1 3JA from 5-8pm on Tuesday 12th February 2019.
The event, the first of its kind this year, will highlight how the current business community can support the award-winning Coca-Cola 5by20 programme. Launched in 2010, Coca-Cola 5by20 is a global initiative with one purpose – to enable the economic empowerment of five million women by 2020. Run in over 60 countries around the world, Dundee is the only city in Western Europe to host the programme.
In less than two years, the programme has supported 110 women, 63 of whom have launched their own business and 29 of whom continue to grow their business. Furthermore, 44 new jobs have been created in the process, alongside over 30 volunteer opportunities.
We are currently looking to increase our mentor numbers, increase diversity, experience and expertise to ensure that we can meet the high demand of our programme graduates. This requires a small commitment but maybe not as much as you think:
- Initial application and meeting with a programme coordinator.
- Once paired with mentee, initial meeting and working agreement signed.
- One meeting monthly for 6 month period, approx. 1 hour per month.
- Feedback and minimal paperwork as required for accreditation scheme.
- Additional training available for your own development if requested through SMN.
