January is National Mentoring Month. To celebrate the importance of mentorship WIA-Canada is once again collaborating with Ryerson University to bring together students pursuing careers in aerospace with professionals already in the field. We’re looking for Mentors and Mentees – men, women and students – to participate in this worthwhile night of networking!
Mentoring can be challenging for a number of reasons – time commitment, compatibility between mentee and mentor, poorly defined expectations, lack of or too much structure, suitable location, etc. Speed mentoring (similar to speed dating) allows for maximized exposure to several individuals in an informal but guided session that is conducive to asking questions, soliciting advice and exploring opportunities – no strings attached!
Aerospace Leaders: Once again, it is your opportunity to have a say in shaping and preparing our future leaders: consider being a Mentor at the Women In Aerospace - Canada’s 5th Annual Speed Mentoring Event, to be held in collaboration with Ryerson University. You will have more of an impact on the future of our industry sector than you can possibly imagine!
Students: Are you eager to get your careers off the ground? Do you have questions about your professional life after school? Sign up to be a Mentee and have an incredible opportunity to ask questions, solicit advice and explore opportunities with successful aerospace industry leaders who have varied and rich backgrounds.
The success of this program depends heavily on Mentor volunteers and equally on students signing up and attending! Mentors and Mentees, don’t miss out on this perfect opportunity to meet and mutually inspire each other.
