What if I cannot commit to full -time mentorship, but still want to be involved?
We love your enthusiasm! Other mentoring opportunities that require a smaller time commitment are available for those unable to participate in the full WIS Mentoring Program. This includes presenting a talk at our lunch-time speaker series and our annual Women in Science and Engineering networking event. If you would like to stay updated on WIS events and possible mentoring opportunities, please contact us at email@example.com to receive our newsletter and event invitations! Our events section is also a great resource for details on upcoming events.
There will be several mentor training and professional development workshops coordinated by our club in conjunction with the UBC Mentorship Community of Practice. Please refer to our events section for current information.
