WiDS Speed Mentoring at DEFSEC
Join the WiDS/WIA Speed Mentoring Event at the DEFSEC Atlantic show on Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
NOTE: You do not need to be registered to attend the DEFSEC Atlantic show to attend the WiDS/WIA event but you MUST register for the WiDS/WIA 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 15-minute conversations with talented senior leaders who represent a wide array of organizations in the defence and security industries. While these short sessions are designed for participants to seek career advice, they often turn into engaging conversations rather than following a simple question and answer format.
“At WiDS, two of the pillars on which we base our success are Creating Connections and Developing Talent. Our Speed Mentoring event contributes to both. This event is really about putting yourself out there, asking questions, and taking advantage of an opportunity where so many senior-level mentors are in one space. These men and women have compelling stories and come prepared to share valuable career advice,” said Jackie Pothier, former WiDS' Vice President of Professional Development.
