Let’s start the career conversation with a few guiding questions:
Q. As professionals from the careers sector how can we initiate career counselling, career guidance and start-up career advising to ensure collaboration and better access for rural women?
Q. How often do we as a career’s community facilitate careers outreach capacity development programs in collaboration with community mobilizers for rural women in their respective communities?
Q. What is preventing us to work in collaboration with the corporate sector and philanthropists to co-develop programmes for rural women’s career development?
