Speed Mentoring provides a tremendous opportunity for those in the early or mid-stages of their career to engage in short 15-minute conversations with talented senior leaders from various organizations in the aerospace, defence and security industry. During these short sessions, mentees will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one advice on career development and life management that will yield a valuable learning experience.


WIA-Canada and WiDS are two not-for-profit, volunteer-based organizations, dedicated to expanding women’s opportunities for leadership and professional development. We both aim to promote and support the advancement of women in careers related to Canada’s defence and security, and in the aerospace community.


You have been identified as one of these exceptional people who could offer helpful insight to those seeking inspiration and guidance. WIA-Canada and WIDS would be honoured if you would accept our invitation to join us as one our mentors for this exciting session. Past mentors have expressed profound satisfaction mentoring and offering guidance to the next generation of professionals in defence and security.
