Meghan Markle wanted her 40th birthday to be special, which is why she released a video announcing the launch of her latest mentorship program for women looking to get back into the job force. Even more, that video included a surprise cameo from Prince Harry and one of the couple’s dogs.
On Wednesday, the Duchess of Sussex announced her latest project, 40x40, a global effort encouraging people around the world to commit to giving 40 minutes of their time to support women going back to work. For the program, Markle asked 40 activists, athletes, artists and world leaders to participate by contributing 40 minutes of mentorship to women reentering the workforce.
In celebration of the launch, the mother of two shared a video from a talk with actress Melissa McCarthy, who was one of the many individuals who gave their time to mentor a woman in their community.
