Are you looking to springboard your career or business to the next level of success during challenging times?
How have these uncertain times impacted you personally and professionally? With information coming from all sides and limited opportunities to interact meaningfully, how will you identify new prospects in the new world of work, engage in self care, expand your network, as well as build and strengthen your position?
Are you working remotely or have you recently relocated to Calgary? Do you wish to connect with those in your field of study or work? Are you searching for business-minded women that are supporting working women? The BPW Calgary Mentorship Program may be just what you are looking for!
More than a decade ago our Mentorship Program was nominated for the Best Practices Award at the Institute of Canadian Citizenship. In light of the pandemic and to address the diverse needs of our membership and community, we have re-defined the mentorship model to make powerful introductions and open the virtual doors to success.
We continue to welcome women of all ages and stages of their career, and in all their diversity. Mentors include professional and business women with varied life experiences who enjoy giving back to the community. This is a unique and customized program ready to have profound impact on the professional and personal lives of participants, both protégées and mentors.
The 6-month mentorship program will be open at no cost to all club members (who are registered and have paid their membership fees). Here is what you can expect:
- Meetings, based on public health guidelines, with an experienced mentor to build and advance your unique goals.
- Workshops on career, business, leadership and current events such as health, employment, finances, negotiating techniques, leadership resilience, and more.
- Learning in safe and inclusive virtual “café” conversations.
- Networking virtually and advocating for working women’s issues such as poverty, health, education, housing, decent work, gender equality, and more.
