Recently, Zonta Brisbane Breakfast Club had the pleasure of meeting Ms Dulcinea Hernandez. Dulcinea is the Director of Community Participation at Volunteering Queensland. Dulcinea discussed with the Zonta Brisbane Breakfast Club a project called ‘Bright Futures’.
This project involves the mentoring of women to enhance their opportunities to return to the workforce. To successfully operate such a program there is a three step process. This involves women dedicating their time to being a mentor, sharing their skills in the area of marketing/fundraising/
Dulcinea gave the Zonta Brisbane Breakfast Club ladies the opportunity to brainstorm ideas for partnering with Volunteering Queensland in order to provide mentoring services.
Many wonderful ideas were considered, and going forward Zonta Brisbane Breakfast Club hopes to offer such services to assist in the progression of women back into the workforce.
