Dell MentorConnect Leads The Way In Diversity + Inclusion!

Dell Technologies just launched MentorConnect – a mentorship programme that promotes diversity and inclusion.

Here is our primer on the Dell MentorConnect programme, and how it will change the workplace dynamics in Malaysia!

 

What Is MentorConnect?

MentorConnect is a unique cross-company mentorship programme that promotes diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

It now has 17 mentors from 11 different companies, and has since helped over 220 mentees – both men and women – in a variety of roles, from finance, sales and operations to engineering, marketing and IT.

Present at the launch, Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development, YB Hannah Yeoh said, “I commend Dell Technologies and its partners for launching the MentorConnect programme – this inter-company collaboration will help those participating to think out of the box, get new ideas and be inspired by how others are doing things.”

“Furthermore, I encourage the private sector and companies like Dell Technologies to explore ideas beyond the professional and personal development of the workforce, and consider the idea of a family-focused workplace.”

“Initiatives such as setting up a childcare centre in the workplace creates an enabling environment – both for mothers and fathers – for employees to thrive in the workplace. Childcare centres in the workplace not only retains women in the workforce but also assures the parents that their children are in a safe place.”

 

How MentorConnect Began

Dell MentorConnect began three years ago as a local initiative by the Penang chapter of the Women In Action Employee Resource Group.

The Women In Action ERG is a community of men and women across the world that aims to position Dell Technologies as an employer of choice for all, by creating a supportive and inclusive environment.

MentorConnect has since grown into a cross-company programme in both the Penang and Cyberjaya campuses of Dell Technologies.
