What our mentors have to say.

  • Lieutenant-Colonel Maureen WellwoodCommanding Officer, 2 Canadian Division Training Centre Canadian Armed Forces, Department of National Defence

    Maureen Wellwood“Mentoring is an important opportunity for professional development in that it helps us learn from others, permits validation of ideas and provides coaching. While a mentor does not have to be of the same gender as the mentee, I believe that many aspects of women’s leadership are only truly understood by women: Sharing that perspective with younger women leaders is beneficial to the mentee, the mentor and their organizations.”

  • Valerie MannPartner, Lawson Lundell LLP

    Valerie Mann“Being able to give back to up and coming leaders and to share the various mistakes I’ve made and to know that it’s never as devastating as you think – to help them to focus and find direction – that is all worthwhile and rewarding to a mentor”.

  • Janice PricePresident and CEO- Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

    “I strongly believe that we have a responsibility to share and teach some of the important lessons we have learned on our own journey to leadership.  When I coach and mentor female professionals I continue to learn as well, and I am committed to providing useful guidance to help them reach their greatest potential.”

  • Denise PothierVice President Practice Services & Vice President Indigenous Relations Stantec Consulting Ltd

    “The only real currency we have is our time. I choose to spend my time investing in the greatness of others; helping them reach their potential; and ultimately, advancing the capacity of our collective future.”

  • Patricia McLeodQC, Board Chair and Corporate Director, Calgary Cooperative Association

    “Mentoring is an opportunity to give back to someone who is striving to improve their own performance, but also continue to learn from others at the same time. It is an important step in everyone's development to have independent perspective on self-improvement, being able to find other ways to look at challenges and learn from other people's mistakes and challenges.”

  • Marci IenCo-Host, The Social, Bell Media

    “When I first started in my business there wasn’t anybody that I could look to for help. Now I’m committed to being what I didn’t have: a mentor.”

  • Heather Christie-BurnsPresident and CEO- High Ground Energy Inc.

    “Mentoring is paying forward the value I have received from others in my career development.”

  • Faten AlshazlyPrincipal & Chief Creative Officer-WeUsThem Inc.

    “Mentoring is experiential learning with a high; it provides for continuous learning not just for the mentee but the mentor as well. There is no higher form of learning than one achieved in this relationship”.
