Speed Mentoring - Breaking Down Barriers
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
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!
