— About Reach

We are your mentoring partner.

Reach is the first structured mentoring program in the Middle East dedicated to helping young female professionals unlock their true potential through structured mentoring and professional support. Mentors are experienced men and women willing to share their knowledge and expertise, within strict rules of confidentiality, to guide, support and help young women in their career development.

Launched in October 2013, Reach is a non-profit incorporated organization dedicated to female mentoring and leadership. Founded by a group of four Dubai-based professional women, Reach is the first non-profit organization to be registered in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and aims to support and develop the skills of female professionals in the region.

Based in the UAE, Reach is a regionally focused organization that aims to expand its mentoring support across the GCC and Middle East. As a non-profit organization, Reach supports the mentoring opportunities it offers through corporate sponsorships. This allows eligible mentees to benefit from the opportunities the organisation offers at no cost.
