WCT Mentorship Program
For over 20 years, the WCT Mentorship Program has been the launch pad for the careers of hundreds of women across Canada. Strategically matching mentors with mentees based of experience, goals and networks, the program is designed to informally provide mentorship for women at all career levels.
The program matches a WCT Member with a senior or peer member of the communications and/or technology sectors for one year of counsel, leadership and professional development. The guiding principles of the mentorship program are for mentors to develop a mentee’s leadership skills and work with them to define goals and develop strategies for reaching them.
The structure of the program is informal. The mentor and mentee decide together on the nature and frequency of meetings, and the objectives and outcomes of the mentorship.
Please note that WCT Student members are not eligible for the program. Applicants for whom there are no available mentors will be kept on a waiting list and reconsidered for the next program session.
Please ensure that your WCT membership is up to date in order to access the application forms.
If you don't think you have what it takes to be a mentor, or want to learn more about being a WCT mentor, email email@example.com.
You do not have to be a WCT member to become a mentor. Develop leaderships skills and build your network by mentoring someone in your industry through the WCT Mentorship Program.
Regional Mentorship Circles
Mentorship Circles are designed to provide like-minded professionals in the telecommunications, media and technology industries the opportunity to form strategic partnerships with members of the group. The partnerships are intended to help members deal with current career challenges, as well as find the support and tools they need to grow and develop in their careers. Participants may be from varied backgrounds, expertise and career levels, but what they share is a passion for excellence and a desire to realize their potential in their professional lives.
By exchanging experiences, challenges and opportunities for the purpose of enhancing self-confidence, communication skills and leadership practices, participants are able to set important development goals and build competence and character to reach those goals. The structure of the Mentorship Circles is designed by the Regional Chapter, but the guiding principles remain rooted in helping WCT members achieve their personal and professional goals.
WCT-NCR is currently accepting applications for the 2017-2018 program.
