WCT Mentorship Program (sponsored by Corus)
For nearly 30 years the WCT Mentorship Program has been the launch pad for the careers of hundreds of women across Canada. Strategically matching mentors with mentees based on experience, goals and networks, the program is designed to formally provide mentorship for women in all the industries WCT serves at all stages of their careers.
The program matches a WCT Member with a senior or peer member of the broadcasting, communications and/or technology sectors for one year of counsel, leadership and professional development. The guiding principles of the mentorship program are for mentors to work with mentees to develop leadership skills and work with them to define goals and develop strategies for reaching them.
The 2020 program will open for applications in the Fall of 2019.
Mentorship Circles (Ottawa-Gatineau Region)
Mentorship Circles are designed to provide like-minded professionals the opportunity to form strategic partnerships with members of the group. The partnerships are intended to help members deal with current career challenges, as well as find the support and tools they need to grow and develop in their careers. Participants may be from varied backgrounds, expertise and career levels, but what they share is a passion for excellence and a desire to realize their potential in their professional lives.
The program is offered by the NCR chapter of WCTwill open for applications in the Fall of 2019.
