Apply for Mentorship

Through my participation in KPWA’s Mentorship Program, I had the great opportunity to meet other female

professionals in various industries and gain valuable insights on their experiences. I enjoyed getting to know my mentor and learning about her career path, and I also gained insights about myself

along the way. Overall, my experience in the Program has been very positive, and I would recommend the program to others as it provides
an exciting new opportunity to learn."

Become a Mentor

 

Growing up, many of us did not have the resources, mentorship or guidance to help us in our professional development and careers. As a mentor, you can give back to our community and empower your mentees in their professional landscape.

My original thought going into this program as a Mentor was that I would ‘give’ more than the ‘Mentee'.  However, I found the experience just as rewarding. The program gave me the opportunity to self-reflect as I opened up about previous experiences that resonated with the one I was

mentoring. I am always in awe of how much young professionals want to hear from seniors and I encourage other senior professionals to take part in this meaningful experience.”
