Women In Leadership…A Trip Down Memory Lane
Stepping Down from National Mentorship Program Developer, Coordinator & Vancouver Mentorship Lead for Women in Leadership
It’s with a heavy heart, I will be stepping down from National Mentorship Program Developer and Coordinator, Vancouver Mentorship Lead with Women in Leadership to pursue the opportunities coming my way.
I have really enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to contribute to WIL Mentorship program since 2008… I have 7 wonderful Mentees whom I adore and I continue to have a rewarding relationships with, plus have enjoyed the opportunity to touch the lives of Mentors & Mentees leading numerous roundtables and leading two fabulous cohorts. This was very rewarding and spoke directly to my vision of empowering people towards the direction of their dreams.
In moving forward I am happy to mentor/succession plan with the new formidable Vancouver Mentor Lead, Elena Yugai who seems to be a really bright light. I will also contribute as a speaker or for the first session “Making the Most of Your Mentorship Relationship & Goal Setting Made Fun & Easy.”
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting like minded women who were looking to push themselves in their careers and grow as professionals. I appreciated the vulnerability of the women in the room and the safe, non-judgemental atmosphere. I also loved the energy of the group and all the amazing friendships I made over the course of the program. Last but not least, I thoroughly enjoyed being matched with such an inspirational, positive, upbeat mentor who I will continue to stay in contact with as I now consider her not only a mentor, but also a dear friend.
