In 2020, Vacheron Constantin successfully launched its ‘One of Not Many’ mentorship program in the UAE leading to international recognition and its commitment to empowering the youth. Now, the Maison is proud to announce the second edition of the educational initiative – this time around, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Partnering up with Dar Al-Hekma University in Jeddah (a non-profit institution of higher education for women), the mentorship program is set to align with the Kingdom’s vision 2030 and will continue to inspire the youth to pursue their dreams and facilitate the start of their professional journey.
The program will allow students to embark on a journey that explores their career ambitions and further develop their existing knowledge and skills. This time around, six inspiring women from Saudi have been selected to mentor senior undergraduate students, through a six-month journey of observation, exploration, and experimentation.
“To kick off the second edition of the Vacheron Constantin Mentorship Program, we are honoured to collaborate with Dar Al-Hekma University and the six inspiring Saudi Mentors: Basma ElKhereiji, Emon Shakoor, Aya AlBitar, Nouf Al Moajil, Nora AlDabal and Shahd AlShehail,” comments Christophe Ramel, Regional Brand Director Middle East at Vacheron Constantin. “The Kingdom represents huge promises and great potential, and the Maison values are aligned closely with the Saudi Vision 2030. We, at Vacheron Constantin, realize the importance of passing down skills to the next generation to support the leaders of tomorrow. We wish all selected students a fruitful program ahead and look forward to witnessing them excel towards their career ambitions.”
Over the six-month-long mentorship program, the six Saudi mentors will mentor six female senior undergraduate students from Dar Al-Hekma University and will work closely together to learn the skillset and attributes to succeed in their desired field of work. Upon successful completion of the ‘One of Not Many’ Mentorship Program, students have the opportunity to embark on an internship program with Vacheron Constantin or any other Richemont Maison.
