Prepare to be inspired, as a new set of Development Entrepreneurship mentees share their reform and mentoring experiences during the second Development Entrepreneurship Mentoring Conference on November 22-24, 2023. The event will be held at Richmode Hotel in Pasig City.
The Conference is the culmination of a six-month mentoring program, which is now on its third cohort. At this conference, we will celebrate the achievements of mentees as they unveil how they applied the DE principles in identifying and pursuing their reforms.
To whet your appetite, here are some of the reforms that our mentees worked on:

In addition to the third cohort mentees, a number of mentees from previous cohorts will also present their recent policy wins. We will also take this opportunity to recognize some of the partners that the Leadership Development Team has been working with over the past few years.
