WCT National Mentorship Program 2021

In partnership with  
Why Mentoring?

Mentoring is a high impact professional development strategy that serves to increase the mentee’s confidence, build leadership skills and ultimately support long term plans for career success. Mentors also benefit by enhancing their leadership skills, gaining new perspectives as well as professional and personal satisfaction.

WCT National Mentorship Program in partnership with Corus

This mentoring program focuses on leadership skills and professional development. WCT strives to create 1:1 partnerships that are customized to what a mentee wants to learn, develop and explore. Women and men from across all sectors of the communications and technology sectors comprise the mentor volunteers.

The program runs for one year and requires a minimum of four meetings per year, the details of which are worked out by the mentor and mentee. It is the mentee’s responsibility to work with the mentor, set up meetings and conduct appropriate follow up.

The deadline to apply is December 11, 2020.
