Specifically, the new program is now more modular and flexible, allowing you to choose the area(s) of contribution that you are most comfortable with. Over time, we hope that this approach would enable you to become leaders in your respective area(s), and that you would pick up new skills and knowledge along the way as well! :smile:

And did we mention that you would get rewarded for your contribution as well? Follow along to find out! :point_down:
