Thoughts and experiences some of our mentees and mentors were kind enough to share!

“Women in Governance’s Mentoring program meets the needs of women seeking to advance their careers, even though they have already reached a managerial level. The training program is very well adapted: it forces reflection on themes that are traditionally less prioritized by women and yet are essential to achieving higher levels of leadership.”

“I have already done some workshops on networking and I think this one is by far the most useful and pragmatic. “

“Congratulations to the organizing committee for spearheading such a high quality initiative. This program will, no doubt, be beneficial not just for the mentees but for the mentors as well and it will directly contribute to the development of a number of young, high potential women leaders in Quebec.”

“Women in Governance’s mentoring program a total blast! I met inspiring women, participated in relevant training, and above all I was paired with a mentor who took me out of my comfort zone to go higher and further. I feel privileged to be part of this first cohort. Many thanks to you for giving me the opportunity to participate in a program of this quality. Especially since it is done on a voluntary basis, with only the interests of women in business at heart.”
