Event Details

Our award winning, six month Women in Leadership Mentorship Program matches rising star young women with women mentors from diverse industries from the business community to develop leadership skills and build confidence. Back by popular demand is our one-to-one mentorship matching! All applicants are interviewed and are matched based on field of interest, personality and experience. Mentees and Mentors commit to meeting together monthly on own as well as attending our learning sessions.

Since launching our WIL Mentorship Program in 2008, our program has made a real difference in the lives of 1400+ 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 career development of women!

Our past results are inspiring and our ripple effect is far reaching:

88% took initiatives to improve workplace     

90% took more responsibilities at work

          40% new contacts lead to job or business

          90% of mentees confidence improved

“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.”  

“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.

“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.”
