Are you an intermediate or senior communications professional who would like to share your expertise by mentoring a fellow IABC/Calgary member?
Mentees typically tend to be new or intermediate 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.
Apply now for the upcoming 2019-2020 cohort in the IABC/Calgary Mentorship Program!
The call for applications for the 2019-2020 cohort is open until Oct. 29, 2019.
The Mentorship Committee carefully considers each mentor and mentee application and aims to match for fit. Once mentors and mentees are matched, each is notified and they have an opportunity to meet at the kick-off event in mid-fall.
New this year: Would you like to pay it forward and support the next generation of communications professionals?
Mentors and mentees alike will have the opportunity to give a total of three hours of their time to a student aspiring to be a communicator. Sign up for this opportunity on your application form.
What level of commitment is involved?
During the six month mentorship cycle (November to May), 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.
Any other details to note?
You must be an IABC/Calgary member to participate in the program. To become an IABC member or renew your membership, start here.
Participation in the program is subject to availability. Submitting an application does not guarantee a spot in the 2019-2020 cohort.
