Launch Date: November
Established as the ﬁrst LGBTQ+ student-focused corporate mentorship program in North America, student mentees are matched with mentors based on their career interests.
This program provides selected students with one-on-one interactive opportunities with industry professionals, working to guide students through their professional, academic, and personal development. Students have the chance to meet with their respective mentors throughout this period to gain knowledge and advice from career planning to resume critiques, while mentors will be given an opportunity to further their mentoring skills and become better role models.
In 2017, over 75% of mentees were members of the LGBTQ+ community. All mentees will be screened and matched by the Rotman Commerce Career Center. The Mentorship Launch will take form as a networking reception in November.
