Now Welcoming Applications for Mentors and Mentees
The Women’s Business Network’s Mentorship Program is a space to foster connection, gain insights and build community. This fall we will be welcoming our 3rd cohort who will be participating in one on one mentorship sessions, group discussions and workshops. The program brings together emerging entrepreneurs and professionals across sectors who are looking to grow through self-development with established entrepreneurs and senior leaders. This year we will be further refining our matching process to ensure that best fit for our mentors and mentees based on goals, interests, experience and sector.
The program will take place over 6 months from September 2021 to February 2022, followed by another cohort starting up for January to June 2022, so you will have a choice of timing. Virtual events will generally take place over the lunch-hour and we will look to possibly have some in-person events as well.
In addition to the time spent in pairs, there will be a variety of interactive sessions with other participants including themed monthly discussions, workshops and peer conversations. We will be covering topics such as:
- Career and business strategy
- Work/life balance – challenges and tips
- Communications and sales
- Expanding your network, online presence
- Other topics TBD based on mentorship applications
What are we looking for?
Mentees: We are seeking enthusiastic entrepreneurs and professionals who are still developing their businesses/careers and are eager to learn from the guidance of a mentor and group discussions.
Mentors: We are looking for seasoned entrepreneurs and professionals who can bring value to members seeking guidance in their personal and professional lives. Mentors will equally benefit from the program through refreshers, exposure to fresh perspectives and the chance to network with others across the WBN.
