Speed Mentoring - Breaking Down Barriers

Most people would agree that everyone can benefit from having a mentor and that mentoring can have a great impact on your career. But, what makes a great mentor and how do you go about finding one?

Introducing Discovery Foundation’s Speed Mentoring Program in Collaboration with WCT, a free event series which seeks to break down barriers by providing informal mentoring opportunities open to all women, trans, and non-binary folk working in communications and technology.

A Speed Mentoring event consists of a series of short, round-table discussions facilitated by one volunteer mentor and up to four mentees, creating opportunities to:

  • Form new connections with both mentors and mentees from a diverse set of backgrounds

  • Explore how having a mentor could support you and your career

  • Gather a range of new perspectives on a challenge you are currently facing

  • Share your wisdom and experience by being a mentor yourself.

You'll also have a chance to win a wine tasting at Township 7 for you and 9 friends!

 

When: Tuesday, June 19

Time: 5pm - 7pm

Where: McMillan LLP, 15th Floor – 1055 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC V6E 4N7

Cost: Free

Light snacks and refreshments included.

 

The theme for this event is Breaking Down Barriers. Participants are encouraged to share a challenge they are currently facing and for which they are seeking guidance and support. Register now to be a mentee!
