Mentorship Program

Why Mentorship?

The mentorship program helps further the vision of WIM/WiN-SK by connecting and inspiring a diverse workforce in the Saskatchewan Mining and Nuclear industries. WIM/WiN-SK believes a structured and targeted mentorship program can increase recruitment, retention, and aid with the development of women within the Saskatchewan mining and nuclear industries.

The WIM/WiN-SK is offering a mentorship program for women in the Saskatchewan mining and nuclear industries. This mentorship program delivers a high-quality, 6-month mentorship program that builds capacity for employees within the Saskatchewan mining and nuclear industry and aims to increase the retention of women, including Indigenous and other under-represented women, within the mining and nuclear industry in Saskatchewan.

How does it work??

As part of the 2022 WIM/WiN-SK Mentorship Program, selected participants will be matched with a mentor whose strengths and experience best aligns with their individual needs, goals, and competencies. Once again, we will be using an on-line mentoring platform, MentorCity, to match mentees with mentors and provide resources to aid and guide participants through their 6-month partnership. Partnerships will run from March 31, 2022 until September 31, 2022.

Mentors and mentees must be willing to commit to a minimum of 1-hour per month during the 6-month partnership and approximately 1 to 2-hours during the onboarding process.

Testimonials

[Mentee] and I had a lot of good "get to know you" conversation. I am encouraged that she can easily see things in my experience that she aligns with and is interested in taking a risk by making changes to her current path.

Mine Your Potential Mentorship Program Mentor

We actually met face to face. The initial meeting went well and we established two goals to focus on. We have scheduled another meeting in 1 months’ time. We both have some preparation to do before our next meeting to make it more effective.

Mine Your Potential Mentorship Program Mentor

I believe the next six months is going to be a great learning experience. My mentor and I had a very good conversation and I am looking forward to working with her during this mentorship.

Mine Your Potential Mentorship Program Mentee

I think we really hit it off and my mentor has some great experience for me to draw from. He's also done a lot of coaching in his career so I'm grateful my pairing worked out so well.
