CWC/SHAW MEDIA MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
Mentoring is a career development essential! Mentors help develop leadership skills, work with you to define your goals and develop strategies for reaching them. A mentor can also be an invaluable sounding board to help you navigate today’s increasingly complex workplace.
The CWC/Shaw Media Mentorship Program can match you with a senior member of the communications and/or technology sectors for one year of counsel and leadership development. The program is informal – you and your mentor decide together on the nature and frequency of meetings, and the objectives and outcomes of the mentorship. This program is offered to CWC members only (excluding students).
Applicants for which there was no available mentor volunteer will be re-considered at the next available intake.
CWC/WIRED WOMAN MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
To support women in the science and technology fields by providing opportunities to network, grow, and share through mentoring relationships.
The CWC / Wired Woman Toronto Mentorship Program is a program offered in partnership with Community MicroSkills Development Centre (MicroSkills) that runs from October 2012 to the end of March 2014. Through this program CWC members are placed in mentoring relationships with immigrant women who are newcomers to Canada, ready with IT qualifications and experience and women who are in transition to careers related to IT. Mentoring support is provided through group mentoring sessions which facilitate carefully chosen areas of development and through some one-on-one mentoring relationships. This mentorship program runs annually with each program year running for nine (9) months.
This program is also for women entering or re-entering the IT work-force, and targets women requiring career guidance. This career mentorship experience within the program is enhanced with networking events, group mentoring and professional development workshops. Career options are reviewed, and networking, application and interviewing skills are honed, for example.
Support a woman in her career development by becoming a Mentor! Enjoy the fulfillment that comes from supporting a woman in her career development by becoming a Mentor for the October 2012 – March 2014 Mentorship Program. It is a great opportunity to give back to the community and learn from each other’s diverse experiences.
