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 in 2022, we re-defined the mentorship model to make powerful introductions and open the virtual doors to success. This year we are elevating the program to new heights to respond to our diverse membership.
We continue to welcome women of all ages and stages of their careers and in all their diversity. Our mentors include professional and businesswomen with varied life experiences who enjoy giving back to the community. This is a unique and customized program ready to have a profound impact on the professional and personal lives of participants, both protégées and mentors.
The mentorship program is open at no cost to BPW Calgary members (who are registered and have paid their membership fees). Here is what you can expect:
- One on One Meetings with an experienced mentor to build and advance your unique goals.
- Two in-person evening workshops (March 23 and May 25, 2024 for this year)
- Monthly club events on career, business, leadership and current events such as health, employment, finances, negotiating techniques, leadership resilience, and more.
- Learning in safe and inclusive in-person and virtual spaces.
- Networking and advocating with women on issues including poverty, health, education, housing, decent work, gender equality, and more.
