Office Hour: "The Power of Relationships: Why Mentorship Matters"

Thursday, January 27, 2022 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

Waterloo Engineering alumni and current students are invited to participate in an exclusive virtual Office Hour "The Power of Relationships: Why Mentorship Matters" sponsored by Ten Thousand Coffees.

Students and Recent Grads! Having a mentor, especially in the workplace, can be a game-changer. Learning to build strong relationships is a key skill for personal and professional success. Building a relationship with a mentor can help boost your confidence, improve your career satisfaction and provide access to networks that will grow your career.

Alumni! Did you know that 1 in 3 young people will grow up without having a mentor? You have the experience and skills to make a difference by becoming a mentor for young people who are starting out their careers and to help close the mentoring gap. There are also tremendous benefits for you, like building your leadership skills, growing your network and helping young people find and follow their passions and thrive.

Come celebrate National Mentoring Month and learn how you can leverage your community, the Waterloo Engineering Hub (powered by Ten Thousand Coffees), to find a mentor or give back to your alma mater by mentoring tomorrow's leaders and change-makers.

Join this exclusive session with Mark Beckles, Vice-President, Social Impact and Innovation at RBC and Ten Thousand Coffees CEO and Co-Founder, Dave Wilkin, to hear about how Mark has benefited from mentorship in his career and how he has amplified his impact by mentoring others.
