Mentorship

Experience is acquired. Thankfully, it can also be shared

Mentorship is recognized as a critical element to help women prepare for and attain upper-level positions. According to a CREW Network study, women who were followed by a mentor increased their chances of securing a mid- or top-level management position by 56% vs. those without a mentor.

What is mentorship and CREW M's mentorship program?

Mentorship is an interpersonal relationship between a mentor and mentee in which the mentor shares their wisdom and professional expertise and experiences in order to further the development of the mentee, who hopes to acquire additional professional skills and achieve defined goals. Mentorship is voluntary and free, and requires honesty, trust and ethical conduct, both from the mentor and the mentee.
The CREW M mentorship program is free, reserved exclusively for CREW M members and lasts one year. All program participants go through a training session before starting the program.

Training

A free 3-hour training session is given by Lyne Talbot, professional coach. It allows the mentee to define their objectives and expectations. For the mentor, this training aims to develop active listening skills and establish expectations on their side.

Matching

Immediately after the training session, participants will take part in a speed-dating-style evening to match mentees with a mentor. Each side will present their expectations and personal goals. They will submit their choices to the Membership and Mentorship Committee, who will then pair off participants, respecting as much as possible the desired choices. The results are announced during the annual general meeting.

How it functions

Each mentor-mentee pair is responsible for identifying their specific goals and expectations, and deciding where and how often they will meet. We recommend they meet an hour a month. The program begins on the date of the AGM and officially ends at the next one.
