The three Denmark locals who took part in the town’s inaugural Young Women in Business Mentorship Program shared what they had learnt at the Denmark Chamber of Commerce December Business After Hours function.

Denmark Arts project manager Kaiya Ashworth, Pilates instructor Ruby Adams and Shire of Denmark communication officer Courtney Walsh were chosen for the program through an application process.

Speaking at the monthly networking event on December 2, Ms Ashworth said the six-month program had left her feeling motivated and inspired by the stories of her mentors.

The trio had access to 11 mentors through the program, including creative producer Annette Carmichael, Shire of Denmark president Ceinwen Gearon and Outdoors Great Southern chief executive Lenore Lyons.

The program was sponsored by the Denmark Chamber of Commerce, Great Southern Development Commission and Silverstream Wines.

Planning is under way for a similar initiative for young men in Denmark.

The December Business After Hours function was held at Rockcliffe Winery.
