This program is for senior communications professionals who would like to share their expertise to help a mentee learn. Mentees typically tend to be newer to immediate communicators in the workforce who want to grow and develop in their careers. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please complete the Mentor Application Form.
The Mentorship Committee carefully considers each mentor and mentee application and strives to make the most beneficial matches for both parties. Once mentors and mentees are matched, each is notified and they have an opportunity to meet at the kick-off event in October.
During the mentorship term (October to June), you will keep in touch with your mentee in a format that works for both of you (face-to-face, email, phone, etc.). We will provide you with suggestions and mentor resources to help you support your mentee. The time commitment is approximately one hour per month.
Note – Current IABC membership is required to participate in the program.
If you have any questions, please contact Julia Perkins. Thank you for your interest in IABC/Calgary’s mentor program.
