Mentorship Program - Women Who Self Create
What is it?:
Women Who Self Create is a mentorship program for women of colour created by women of colour.
The program connects young women to mentors in creative fields.
Who is it for?:
The program is for people who identify as women of colour and live in Ontario. Ideal mentees are interested in pursuing a career in a creative industry or are less than two years into the field, people who can accept different points of view, and people who want to work towards goals with a mentor.
How does it work?: You fill out a Google form to apply to be a mentee. We pair you with a mentor and you can connect with them either online or, if you’re in the GTA, at one of their in-person or online events.
Commitment: You commit to 1 hour monthly meetings for 15 weeks which includes online learning that you can do at your own time and pace.
The program is guided but it’s flexible too, so it’s up to you how your relationship with your mentor develops. As the mentee, get to choose how many months you’d like to commit to.
