The Ban Ki-moon Centre is excited to launch the second year of the “Global Citizens at Work” mentorship program in collaboration with the Muslim Youth of Austria. 🌎The kick-off event was held online on April 16th with the selected young women mentees and their mentors. The session was moderated by Ban Ki-moon Centre Program Officer Julia Zimmerman and Melisa Boskovic from Muslim Youth of Austria detailed the process awaiting the young women. 21 mentors including Ban Ki-moon Centre CEO Monika Froehler met their mentees for the first time.
This year the program will guide 21 young Muslim women in the framework of #SDG5 – Gender Equality; #SDG10 -Reduced Inequalities; #SDG17 – Partnerships for the Goals.
