students, year 2), Anthea Cheng (Professional Accountancy

At the kick-off event, participants were welcomed by Mr. Jérôme Baudy, Regional Managing Director Asia Pacific of Christian Dior. They also met with the mentors and paid a visit to the Christian Dior store in Central.
The mentoring programme, initiated by Dior, is a year-long worldwide project that aims to empower and raise confidence in young female students in realizing their full potential in the professional settings. Each student will be matched up with a Dior professional as their mentor according to their interest area of expertise, whom she will be able to talk to and be advised by during the course of the programme. This is the second conservative year our students have participated in the programme.
Last year, four students from CUHK Business School participated in the programme. Charlotte Lo (Hospitality and Tourism Management, Year 3) and Carol Chan (Integrated BBA, Year 3), who attended the closing event in Paris this March, shared with us their reflections from participating in the programme last year.
