“MentorLink: A multilogue with leading professionals”
MentorLink brings professionals who work in the conflict and reconciliation field where religion and spiritual diversity is a component of their work with students on campus who are interested in these topics. MentorLink provides opportunities for students to build networks with other students, diversity training and inter-cultural communication skills during discussions, while also gaining valuable experience during mentor discussions to prepare them for Canada’s diverse workforce.
Students (mentees) accepted into MentorLink are encouraged to learn from their fellow student participants, seek advice and information about their career interests from mentors, and actively participate in a three-part series which includes media, meeting up with like-minded inquisitive students, and mentoring by professionals.
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
