Following a very successful Female Futures Fund launch this March, IAPI is thrilled to have received a large number of high calibre applicants for 2022 Female Futures Fund programme.

At the end of the initiative, 25 high potential women will be able to avail of the Female Futures Fund bursary sponsored by Diageo. The group will recieve leadership coaching programme that encompasses a kick off meeting, followed by two workshop sessions facilitated by Danica Murphy with support from both IAPI and Diageo female leaders.

We have now entered the first step of judging stage which is the online review process for this year's programme. Following which, we will then head on to the interview process of the judging stage. At the end of the two-stage judging process, we will be back in touch with applicants towards the end of May.

We wish all applicants the very best of luck and look forward to begin working with these very talented women as we kick off with the workshops for the 2022 programme.

JUDGING PROCESS

For this year's judging we reached out to Senior leaders and past participants from all are member agencies to join IAPI on the panel. The judges were sectioned into groups of 6 and are allocated a set of candidates being sure to not allocate candidates from their agencies.

The judging process kicked off last week and the judges are powering through to select the deserving candidates who will be shortlisted to go on to the next round of judging which is the interview stage.
