Waterloo Region Mentorship Circles Program

Each month from November to May, we host a Keynote speaker from the community to educate us on a topic that will help us with our professional growth. Following each Keynote, we break out into small Mentoring Circles for the Mentoring portion of the program. Mentoring Circle members are from varied genders, backgrounds, expertise, and career levels and consist of 1-2 Mentors and 6-8 Mentees. Groupings are by career stage: Pre-Career, Early Career, Mid-Career, and Executive Professionals.

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 in a supported group where members become accountable to one another.

We are using EnPoint, a Canadian female-founded Mentoring Platform developed and run out of Canada.

In order to enroll, please follow the link to EnPoint. Setup a profile on EnPoint. Accept the Program Agreement, and then complete the confidential intake form to provide information related to your mentoring goals. The information is used to match participants to a Circle. EnPoint will enable easier communication with all participants, a resource center where you can find past presentations and materials, as well as articles recommended by speakers and mentors, and the links for our virtual meetings.
