QWN Mentorship Program

Program Information

The QWN Mentorship Program puts the Mentee’s in the driver’s seat.  As a mentee, you are responsible for setting up meetings with your Mentor, bringing topics or questions to discuss and following up as required.  Our mentors are great resources for you to access and to keep them coming back, we want to minimize the amount of extra work they need to do to provide this great opportunity to the members of Queen's Women's Network. 

Mentorship Timeline Commitment

The mentorship program runs for 10 months from approximately March until December.  During this time you and your mentor will decide on the meeting structure that works best for both of you, meeting regularly within these 10 months with a commitment of approximately 1 meeting/month.  Please see below for approximate timeline, please note that this is subject to change:

"I partook in the mentorship program where I gained confidence and a broader perspective of what was happening at a higher level on campus. This experience led me to transition to a different role on campus that is more enjoyable and start a master's program at Queen's. I believe that QWN has played a leading role in the continuance of my success here at Queen's."
