On Wednesday, October 2, 2019, Women in Aerospace Canada Atlantic (WIA-C) and Women in Defence & Security (WiDS) will host the first Atlantic Speed Mentoring event.

Speed Mentoring provides a unique forum for those either just starting out or mid-career to interact with senior-level men and women in industry, military and the public sector.  Mentees will have the opportunity to engage in several 15-minute conversations with talented senior leaders who represent a wide array of organizations in the aerospace, defence and security industry.  While these short sessions are designed for participants to seek career advice in simple question-and-answer format, they often turn into engaging conversations.

The workshop will pair mentors with 1-2 mentees at a time.  There will be 6-7 rotations giving different mentees the opportunity to sit with mentors and discuss “burning questions”.  Like all WIA-C and WiDS events, this is open to both women and men.

Date:                Wednesday, October 2, 2019

*The mentors and mentees are invited to participate in the networking reception to be held at the same location immediately following the workshop.  This will give you the opportunity to continue with some of those conversations that were started during the short 15 minutes, or start new ones through networking!
