The fabulous people over at Bumble have announced a slew of virtual business mentoring opportunities, encouraging young Aussies to stay motivated and connected during these truly shit as hell times.

Eight powerhouse women will take part in the Bumble Bizz Virtual Mentoring Series, sharing a heap of their industry knowledge with you. So who can you expect? Well [heavy drumroll], there’s Kristin Fisher (CEO and founder of Kristin Fisher Eyebrows), Kristen Carriol, (CEO of Lanolips), Lilian Ahenkan AKA FlexMami (MTV presenter and DJ), Ava Matthews (co-founder of Ultra Violette), Michelle Battersby (chief marketing officer of Keep It Cleaner), Alyce Tran (founder of The Daily Edited), Jackie Frank (founder of Be Frank Group), and Michelle Greene (creative director of JAGGAD). How bloody good is that lineup?

The virtual meetings will take place over video chat so women across Australia can tune in.

Lucille McCart, Bumble’s Associate Director, said these mentoring sessions are as important as ever.

“While we have always had a strong focus on digital-first networking, in times like now when face-to-face meetings are off the table, we are even more committed to ensuring our users can access our platform to meet new people who can have a huge impact on their professional lives.”

The Bumble Bizz Virtual Mentoring Series kicks off Monday, 4 May and runs until Friday, 19 July. If you’re keen, all you have to do is download the Bumble app and match with the virtual mentoring card, which you can find in Bumble Date, BFF, or Bizz mode. Every Monday a new card will be unleashed, signalling the opportunity to match with a new mentor.

Bumble is available for download on both the App Store and Google Play.
