2017 WIL Mentorship Program - CLOSED


Vancouver, Calgary & Toronto Applications now open.

Mentors & Mentees needed!

6 Month Program STARTS April 5th, 2017

Our six month WIL Group Mentorship Program matches rising star young women with women mentors from diverse industries from the business community to develop leadership skills and build confidence. Applicants are interviewed and put into a Leadership Pod with 6-9 other mentors & mentees selectively matched based on field of interest, personality and professional experience. The cohort will meet in person 4 times person and 1 time through a webinar.  Our past results are inspiring and our ripple effect is far reaching:

     90% took more responsibilities at work

     40% new contacts lead to job or business

     90% of mentees confidence improved


Since launching our WIL Mentorship Program in 2008, our program has made a real difference in the lives of 1300+ women who have been through the program and in the workplace of participating organizations. With each cohort, we are building a supportive community of professional women from diverse industries and backgrounds who want to support each other in their leadership journey. Be part of an amazing program creating positive change in the leadership and carer development of women.

“Being a WIL Mentor this year has been a wonderful experience. The program exceeded my expectations with valuable content on skill-building, self-awareness, public speaking and more. I strongly feel the skills that women need moving forward aren't technical abilities, but the ability to stand solid in life (self-management), to make informed decisions true to oneself (authenticity), and to seek guidance when feeling stuck (vulnerability). This mentoring program develops all three areas through learning. It's a wonderful chance to share and see how common our struggles are as modern women. The in-person workshops were as powerful as the 1:1 mentoring to create a safe, supportive environment in a group setting. Many of us completed the program having made lasting connections and having gained a new horizon for our future.” Jessica Manca, Mentor

*Deposit is non refundable once you are matched.  If you do not like your match or need to cancel your participation prior to April 30th, 2017 then we will refund your balance of fees paid aside from the deposit.



When will I be matched?

We gather as many Mentor candidates as possible to provide the best match.  Typically matching is done during March.  Prior to that you will be contacted to arrange a time in early March for an interview.

What is the refund policy?

You may receive a full refund by December 15. After, Dec 15th your deposit is non-refundable.  If you cancel between Dec 15 & March 8th you be refunded your $200 Balance fees if you have paid that already.  After March 8th we do not provide refunds unless you are not matched.

What if I don't like my match?

Typically we only have 1 out of every 30 or so matches that dont work out.  As much of the value is in the group mentoring we recommend participants stick with their mentor.

Where are the sessions held?

All sessions take place in downtown area for ease of access and start at 6 or 6:30pm.

What is the content of the sessions?   

You will receive full details on the sessions, which are very engaging, well in advance.
