On Friday, 24 September, we celebrated the hard work and achievements of our Lotus Flower Programme graduates with a ceremony, highlighting their success and bright futures ahead.
The ceremony was held at the NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, and guests included the Nike Core Team, workshop facilitators, mentors, and of course, our graduates.
9-week Lotus Flower Programme
In collaboration with the Nike Women of EMEA Network, our powerful participants received 9-weeks of workshops focused on Nike and Sports Heritage, Supply Chain Management and Data Science (Python 101) facilitated by Nike’s most inspiring leaders.
The participants also received physical fitness workshops, and were matched with a female mentor at Nike who they met with once per week for supplemental guidance, support and sisterhood.
‘We’re immensely proud of our graduates and their accomplishments throughout the programme,’ said Christina Moreno, Founder of She Matters. ‘For 9-weeks, we’ve watched our participants blossom – both personally and professionally. With future proof skills under their belt, and a new sense of confidence, they are uniquely positioned to enter the labour market. A very big thank you to the Nike Women of EMEA Network for sponsoring this programme, and to the employees of Nike for facilitating the workshops and participating as mentors. This wouldn’t have been possible without their support.’
So what’s next for our graduates? Job placements via She Matters B.V. Much more to come, so stay tuned!
