SheMentors Purpose - The "Why"?Because we as Humans are not always wired to be in growth mode. We get tired and burned out. We get often distracted by other life responsibilities compiling on our shoulders. We set goals and fall short, and on top of all this, due to socially and politically constructed beliefs, we as Women face more barriers to growth. This is the reason WHY YWiB Toronto is launching its first mentorship program, to help our community re-focus, and continue down the path towards a growth mindset.
SheMentors Brief- The "What"?SheMentors is a 6-month mentorship program tailored to meet the needs of YWiB Toronto community members including the Newcomer; the Entrepreneur, and the Seeker. Our aim is to provide every young woman with an inclusive opportunity to leverage their professional and personal growth through mentorship and also to provide other well-established women with the opportunity to give back to the community through knowledge-sharing & mentorship. We believe that once each one of us finds a mentor experienced in the areas we are truly passionate about, those growth moments will present themselves, and success will be inevitable.
