WCT's National Mentorship Program has operated continuously for nearly 30 years. It has matched hundreds of professional women in broadcasting, telecommunications, communications and technology with mentors who can help them advance their careers.
Last year we matched nearly 80 mentees with mentors all across Canada - an all-time high for the program. We recently sent out a call for volunteer mentors for 2020 and were overwhelmed by the response. For WCT, mentorship is more than a program, it's a movement.
Join us to kick off our next season. Our program will feature a panel discussion on the why's and how's of mentorship. Refreshments (and networking) will be served.
