CONNECTED links young female students from grades 10 through 12 with female mentors from a vast spectrum of career backgrounds. We believe that young women need access to adult role models who are willing to share their stories and career pathways. Ultimately, promoting a culture of support and empowerment among young women as they navigate their preferred future. We welcome students pursuing all post-secondary pathways: work, university, college or apprenticeship and those who are still deciding.
Typically, this a dinner event, and throughout the evening the students were seated with other female students as well as several women “mentors” from our community who shared their career journey. Unfortunately, this year, all of our events will look very different, as we will have to host them virtually. However, the students will still hear the stories, career goals, and life lessons from the mentors.
“Connected was a wonderful experience that helped me to understand the journey of becoming a working woman. I have taken many great lessons to heart, and I learned an immense amount of valuable information at this event. I had a fantastic evening, and am so thankful for this opportunity.”
