WLP is launching our Pilot Mentorship Program for Members Only!
Please note: The Pilot Mentorship Program will be offered in English only, with the plan to expand to both English and French later this year when we open up the program to all members.
What is Mentoring?
Mentoring is a relationship between a mentor and mentee which focuses on long term career development; building skills, knowledge and understanding. By sharing their experience, mentors help to guide a mentee in their career development plan and personal growth.
Being a mentor allows you to have a true impact on your mentee’s career by helping them become more valuable to their organization and confident in their career.As a mentor, you will gain a personal sense of satisfaction from knowing that you have helped someone else.
Being a mentee allows you to expand your knowledge and skills, gain advice from a more experienced individual and build your professional network.
We invite all WLP members to volunteer as mentors

We are counting on our pilot participants to provide feedback through regular surveys and interviews, to help us develop our chosen platform and refine the WLP mentorship program. We will need a minimum of 30 mentors for the pilot and encourage all members to consider engaging in this opportunity to share their experience and expertise. After the pilot is complete, we will be opening up the mentorship program at the end of 2021.
