WCM Campus Ambassadors
WCM’s Campus Ambassadors are our direct connection between students and WCM.Learn More
WCM's University Mentorship Program pairs female undergraduate and graduate students with a professional currently working in the capital markets. Students gain valuable insights, guidance and advice from their mentors that will help set theirs careers in motion.
Protégées will be paired with four professionals, starting with one mentor for three mentorship sessions during the first three months of the program. For the remaining three months, protégées will have the opportunity to meet a different mentor each month. These meetings should be held virtually and will allow protégées to discuss a wide range of topics that could include:
Protégées have a unique opportunity to gain advice, industry knowledge and guidance from professionals in Canadian finance. Mentors support protégée’s skill development, grow their networks and leverage their experience so they can be prepared to succeed in their capital markets careers. The rewards of this formative relationship are timeless.
*The program is open to students across Canada. Due to the geographically concentrated nature of the industry, geographic proximity between mentors and protégées may not always be feasible, but will be prioritized wherever possible.
All meetings should be conducted virtually as a result of COVID-19.
Mentors have the opportunity to give back and support the next generation of women in finance. A mentorship relationship fosters the growth, learning and development of a protégée that can impact their personal, academic and professional life for years to come.
