Women in Governance is expanding its mentoring program!

Offered to high-level executive women for the past 5 years, the mentoring program will now also be open to professionals.

 

OBJECTIVE AND OPERATIONS

Women in Governance’s objective is to help organizations increase the representation of women in sectors where they have historically been underrepresented, as well as in senior management positions, thus creating a pipeline of female talent. This mentoring program is designed to train and equip women to prepare them for the next steps in their careers. Offered in virtual mode, the Women in Governance program ensures that support for women can continue to grow, without external disruption.

Women in Governance advocates support for the advancement of women through concrete actions, which is why the program was developed to support a wider circle of women at the professional and executive levels.

Apply as a Mentor

Apply as a Mentee

The mentoring program is for a period of 12 months. It is made up of a mentee who wishes to benefit from the experience of a mentor to advance her career, and an influential group of women and men, often senior executives, who offer their expertise and experience to the mentee. A strong commitment to the program fosters learning, confidence building and advancement for these women.

APPROACH

Women in Governance mentoring program was designed by a strategic committee, composed of people with extensive experience in the field, to enable the mentee to manage the relationship with her mentor and to take responsibility for the objectives she has set for herself. The best practices in the field of mentoring have been implemented for a very robust program.

The program includes:

  • Pairing;
  • Coaching of mentors and mentees;
  • Training on the mentoring relationship;
  • Training workshops;
  • Platform for sharing tools;
  • Access to numerous resources;
  • Virtual Meetings of approximately 1.5 hours every 6/8 weeks with high-level mentors. To be determined with your mentor.

Each mentor adopts an approach based on reflective thinking: instead of sharing his or her experience and telling the mentee what to do in a situation, the mentor instead learns to ask questions in order to get the mentee to think for herself and to build confidence and motivation to reach her own conclusions.

Women in Governance mentoring program is offered to women, whether executive or professional, to help them in their ascension.

  • Career boost;

  • Exposure to new approaches and perspectives;
