Event description

Description

Are you a pregnant professional, a professional on mat leave or a working mother interested in a mentorship/coaching experience?

If you answered yes, the Pros&Babes MommyMentors program could be for you!

Participants will be matched with another mother from Edmonton and given a toolkit to develop a mentorship/coaching relationship.

All participants will meet as a group five times between April 9 and June 25 to share insights and discuss relevant topics.

When registering, you can select whether you are looking to be a mentor, mentee or peer mentor.

Pros&Babes will match participants based on interests and preferences. We will do our best to match you according to your preferences, but we cannot guarantee a full alignment.

This is why we encourage participants to be open to a peer mentorship dynamic, where both participants can mentor and coach each other. Usually, mentors learn as much as mentees do in such a relationship.

Venue subject to change.

Participants who are not matched receive a full refund.

FAQs

Why do I have to pay to be a mentor?

Although we ask each participant whether they want to be a mentor, a mentee or a peer mentor, our program offers a peer mentorship framework where both participants benefit from the mentoring dynamic.
Fees are charged to cover venue costs, refreshments and materials provided.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is parking for 3 or 4 vehicles at the back, just be sure not to park where there are no parking signs. Otherwise there is residential parking around the area. Please enter via the side door on the north side of the home. It is a peach colored stucco home that is set back quite far from the road, so it’s easy to miss it as you drive by the front. But the house numbers are very large and it is on both the back and front of the home.

Some public transportation options are available. Please check Google Maps for the best options.

What can I bring into the event?

You can come with your baby. Feel free to bring a book or article related to the topic of the week. There may be limited, but not guaranteed space for strollers outside. Please be mindful of this when attending the meetings.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can write to prosandbabes@gmail.com with questions about the event.

What is the refund policy?

You can request a refund until March 9. After March 9, only participants who are not matched receive a refund.
There are no partial refunds at any time.
