Mentoring Resources

The Online Community and Mentoring Pilot Project aims at building capacity, confidence and ultimately a sense of belonging to a community of technical women through mentoring, as well as fostering ongoing commitment to technical careers for both the STEM students and their mentors.

Welcome to our mentoring resources page!

We highly recommend that all participants to the program download the mentoring guide and use it to start their mentorship and as a reference later during the 6 months relationship. This guide is designed to ensure that both mentors and mentees understand how the mentoring program works, that they have the skills to participate effectively, and they are equipped with a sound understanding of:

  • What mentoring is
  • Benefits of mentoring
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • How to manage the process effectively Mentoring Ice Breakers might be helpful during your first meetings.

Here is a recording of our webinar for mentees: “Mentoring Program Overview”, Jan. 28, 2014. We had some technical difficulties at the beginning of the call, with a 3 minute pause/silent line. The call resumes normally after that.
