WCT National Mentorship Program
Mentorship is a proven strategy to help women advance their careers in Canada. Whether it is through mentorship circles or one-on-one mentorship, leveraging the knowledge and experience of our peers and seniors can be a great way to break down the barriers to the advancement of women in technology, communications and media industries in Canada. All types of mentorship provide an opportunity to identify career aspirations, overcome challenges and expand your network by connecting with other professional men and women.
For over 20 years, the WCT National Mentorship Program has been the launch pad for the careers of hundreds of women across Canada. Strategically matching mentors with mentees based of experience, goals and networks, the program is designed to informally provide mentorship for women at all career levels.
The program matches a WCT member with a senior or peer member for one year of counsel, leadership and professional development. The guiding principles of the mentorship program are for mentors to develop a mentee’s leadership skills and work with them to define goals and develop strategies for reaching them.
This program is open to WCT members only. Please note that WCT Student members are not eligible for the program.
