The Women in Foundation is excited to announce the launch of our inaugural Indigenous Women Mentorship Program with our first cohort of ten (10) mentor partnerships.
We are immensely proud of the award-winning WiL Mentorship Program with over 2,000 graduates, our 5 month program matches emerging women leaders with mentors to build confidence and develop leadership skills.  All mentees are matched 1-1 with an exceptional Indigenous woman leader.
THIS IS CALL FOR MENTEES & MENTORS TO APPLY FOR THIS FREE PROGRAM!
MENTEES AT ALL CAREER STAGES WELCOME.

What is the impact of mentoring?

In general, for the mentees, it is linked to improved academic, social, and economic prospects and increased knowledge.  For the mentors, the relationship can build leadership and management skills, expand a mentor’s professional network, and provide an empowering opportunity to give back to the community.  The relationship is based on trust, confidentiality, mutual respect, safe space for conversation and sensitivity.  This can be a life changing experience!

FEEDBACK FROM PAST MENTORSHIP PARTICIPANTS:

“Being a mentor has been a very meaningful experience for me. It has made me realize how important it is for young women to have a female role model in their life. It has especially made me appreciate the mentoring I myself have received over the years.”   

 

“Being a part of the Women in Leadership mentorship program has helped me to develop and hone leadership and life skills that I can now use in the workplace as well as in my community.”  

"Things have been great ever since (I participated in WIL's Mentorship Program) and my career only keeps moving forward. The inspiration provided by WIL's mentoring program keeps me moving and, looking back, applying for the program was the best decision I've made while settling in Canada.”  

“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the WIL Program for the amazing opportunity to grow, and to my Mentor, who has opened my eyes to a new way of being on this transformational journey.”

 

“It has meant having a “big sister” in the professional world to call when we’re confused! It’s been great to have a mentor who provides guidance, laughter and support.” 

 

“It’s a very good match. I’ve left the initiating to her. She is vision packed. We’re now working on her confidence and I’m sure she’ll accomplish that. I think it’s important to have a mentor who is there to help you with your confidence.” 

“It’s hard to find someone who wants to see you succeed, and my mentor helps me find the answers I seek.”
