2019 Mentoring Program

HOW THE MENTORING PROGRAM WORKS
The Toronto Chapter enlists the support of senior-level individuals who are willing to share their professional experiences with others. The Toronto Chapter also seeks mid-level professionals interested in advancing their careers and increasing their professional visibility.

Through an application process, the mentors and mentees are matched based on a combination of their mutual professional interests. With assistance from the WTS Toronto Chapter, mentor-mentee teams develop a series of goals and objectives to achieve during the course of the 12-month Mentor Program.

Mentor-mentee teams meet, face-to-face, on a monthly basis to work towards these goals and objectives. Teams will attend “group sessions” where the mentor-mentee teams can interact with other teams, participate in group learning & development, meet the WTS Board of Directors, share experiences and provide feedback in an informal setting. Mentor-mentee teams provide formal feedback on their progress via evaluation forms at the mid-way point and prior to mentee-graduation and program close.
