WCM’s Campus Ambassadors are our direct connection between students and WCM.Learn More
WCM's Post-Secondary Mentorship Program pairs female - identifying undergraduate and graduate students with a professional currently working in the finance industry. Students gain valuable insights, guidance and advice from their mentors that will help set their careers in motion.
Protégées will be paired with one mentor (male or female) for a 6 month period. These meetings can be held virtually or in person, and will allow protégées to discuss a wide range of topics that may 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.
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.
