Mentorship Program

The YYJ Tech Ladies Group is creating a community of women in technology, right here in beautiful Victoria B.C. Our mentorship program matches young women with mentors from diverse tech and non-tech backgrounds. Our sole goal is to provide access to a strong peer network to help our community of women succeed.

 

Am I eligible?

The pilot program is open to women in the early stages of their career and female students.  Women in technical and non-technical backgrounds working in tech sector only please.


How does it work?

 

The YYJ Tech Ladies Committee matches mentees and mentors based on:

  • Skill and experience of mentor against mentee experience and request

  • Perceived cultural/ time/ personality fit

  • Request of specific mentor from mentee

Facilitating mentor and mentee relationships is a challenging process. The committee does it’s best to group women based on information provided in application forms.

Let us know if you have any concerns about your mentor/mentee matching. We’re happy to arrange an alternate mentor/mentee for the program duration.
