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.
