The Rosie Mentoring Program opens applications for fall 2021 session
The Rosie Mentoring Program is now accepting applications from Canadian women working in the skilled trades who are interested in becoming proteges or mentors starting in September 2021.
Women interested in becoming a protege in the free, six-month program must have worked in their field for at least one year. Both male and female industry professionals are welcome to apply as mentors, and must have more than five years of experience.
Participants are generally expected to meet through four one-and-a-half hour meetings or six one-hour meetings, and will receive support material, including a guide and action plan, to help them set goals and track their progress.
The program is part of the Rosie Initiative by The Prosperity Project, a not-for-profit organization founded to help women who have been impacted by the pandemic, and is co-presented with Ontario Power Generation. Its goal is to offer women beginning their careers in the trades and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) access to role models and mentors by matching mentors and proteges one-on-one.
The September 2021 session will be the program’s second cohort. Visit The Rosie Mentoring Program for more information, or to apply.
