“MentorLink: A multilogue with leading professionals”
MentorLink brings professionals, who work in sectors such as conflict and reconciliation, filmmaking, or religion and spiritual diversity research, together with students who are interested in one of these topics. MentorLink provides opportunities for students to build career networks and experience, while also gaining valuable experience to prepare them for Canada’s diverse workforce.
Students (mentees) accepted into MentorLink are encouraged to learn from their fellow cohort participants, seek advice and information about their career interests from mentors who work in the field that interests them, and actively participate in organizing a student-led group project.
This group mentoring program aims to:
• Provide students with industry perspective to enhance their academic direction
• Build community with students on campus from various cultures and disciplines
• Create opportunities for students to be leaders
• Learn inter-cultural communication skills for the global workforce
• Actively engage students on campus in a student-led project
The Iona Pacific Inter-religious Centre MentorLink program runs from October 2013 to March 2014. Students will be in the program with their respective cohort: Conflict & Reconciliation, Filmmaking or Religious/Spirituality on Campus.
During these six months, students will meet professionals three times: Welcome & Speed Networking, Cohort Mentor Panel Night, and the Wrap-up Event.
