The mentoring program focuses on establishing a connection between accomplished women of substance and young/aspiring women leaders in the community.  The approach to this mentorship is three-pronged: professional, social and emotional. Through these processes participants will be building trust in one another through conferencing/meeting, observation, coaching and the development of growth plans and actions. It will inspire and challenge mentees to change their thinking to positively seeing themselves succeed, lead and inspire others.  Ultimately it will nurture a community of dedicated women leaders who will in turn impact younger women’s lives.

Who is a mentor?

A mentor is "a trusted counselor or guide” or “a wise, loyal advisor or coach."
They possess vast personal and social experiences to share and are willing to do so with their mentees.  They serve as a trusted confidante over an extended period of time, usually free of charge.

Institutional mentors are also being explored – where mentees are not only mentored by the mentor, but will also experience the entire institution, in which the mentor works.

Their reason for doing this is most importantly as a way of giving back or paying their opportunities forward to their community and to society at large. Contact us to be a mentor.

Who is a mentee?

Mentees are young women who have demonstrated signs of dedication and focus, who have displayed leadership skills, passion and enthusiasm.
They could include women who run their own businesses, work in the private or public sector, or are just completing a tertiary institution.
