The program will match select near-career students and early career professionals with mid-career professionals. Early career professionals may also mentor the near-career students, when deemed appropriate.
Mentees will be able to find a mentor who can answer questions and offer specific insight into their career path or opportunities for further networking. Opportunities for training and further research will be discussed.
Our mentorship program encompasses a breadth of fields – medicine, law, politics, media, start-ups and so forth. We will work with community organizations who are already organizing mentorship programs and capacity-building initiatives. To this end we will work with the Muslim Medical Association of Canada, Canadian Muslim Lawyers Association, National Council of Canadian Muslims and so forth.
Our quarterly meetings will discuss issues relevant to early career professionals. To date we have had sessions on wellness & resiliency.
