WOMENTORSHIP

How Do I Join?

Proteges:

Protege benefits/commitment include:

Protege Application Form  - Application deadline has been extended to Friday August 23rd, 2013

  • Personalized match with an experienced professional as a Womentor
  • Quarterly 1-hour one-on-one coaching/development sessions with your Womentor (at a minimum)
  • Womentorship Kick-Off Event (October)
  • Three Developmental Seminars (November, February, April)

The annual Protege Womentorship Membership Fee is $750 + GST. We have three sponsored memberships available for Proteges currently employed in the not-for-profit sector with a registered charity. If you wish to be considered for one of the sponsored memberships, please submit a letter of interest with your completed application form. Your letter of interest must indicate how your experience and professional development within the Womentorship Program will benefit both yourself and your organization. Proteges must be University of Saskatchewan alumni. Given the importance of face-to-face interaction in the Mentorship Program, preference will be given to those living in Saskatoon and area.

Space in the program is limited. Only 20 Proteges will be accepted into the 2013-14 Program. To ensure this opportunity is available to as many as possible, first preference will be given to those who haven't participated as a Protege in the Program before. Past participants are invited and welcome to participate in the 2013-14 professional development sessions at a cost of $200/session. Please send us an email to womentorship@edwards.usask.ca to let us know you are interested in this opportunity.

Womentors:

Womentor Benefits/Commitment include:

Womentor Information Form

  • A personalized match with a Protege
  • Quarterly, 1 hour one-on-one coaching/development sessions with your Protege (at a minimum)
  • Womentorship Kick-off Event (October)
  • Three Developmental Seminars (November, February, April)

Application Process:

After all applications are received, each application will be reviewed individually as part of the matching process. Once a match is finalized, we will notify you. Our goal is to find a well-suited match for everyone accepted into the Program and, unfortunately, an appropriate match may not be available for everyone who applies. The matching process will be completed before the first event in October. A complete program schedule will be released in August 2013 (once all details have been finalized).

For the success of this program, it is important that you commit the time and make yourself readily available to attend the majority of our workshops, and that Proteges initiate contact with their Womentor. Given the importance of face-to-face interaction in the Mentorship Program, preference will be given to those living in Saskatoon and area.
