UNESCO is partnering with Dior, in the context of Global Education Coalition, to run a mentoring programme for young women entitled Women@Dior. The programme provides young women studying in tertiary education with education and mentoring on issues such as entrepreneurship and leadership. Participants will also create a Dream for Change project that supports the empowerment of girls and young women.

Dior has expanded the number of places available for the 2021 edition of this programme with an additional 63 places available globally. Previous mentees have come from all over the world, including France, China, Nigeria, Kenya, Costa Rica, Brazil, Iran, Bangladesh and many more countries.
