2019 WiDS Speed Mentoring - DEFSEC

Join us for the WiDS Speed Mentoring Event: DEFSEC on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Registration: $25.00

Note:  Registration to DEFSEC is not required to attend the event.

Speed Mentoring provides a unique forum for those either just starting out or mid-career to interact with senior-level men and women in industry, military and the public sector. Mentees have the opportunity to engage in 15-minute conversations with talented senior leaders who represent a wide array of organizations in the defence and security industries. While these short sessions are designed for participants to seek career advice, they often turn into engaging conversations rather than following a simple question and answer format.

“At WiDS, two of the pillars on which we base our success are Creating Connections and Developing Talent. Our Speed Mentoring event contributes to both. This event is really about putting yourself out there, asking questions, and taking advantage of an opportunity where so many senior-level mentors are in one space. These men and women have compelling stories and come prepared to share valuable career advice,” said Jackie Pothier, WiDS' Vice President of Professional Development.
