Mentorship Program

The IAP2 Canada Mentorship Program

What our participants had to say!

"Inspiring. Enriching. Supportive."

"It's been a joy to have someone who knows the P2 world support me in my academic and professional ventures."

"I really appreciated having the opportunity to receive advice, guidance and feedback from an IAP2 professional with lots of experience to share. It was nice having someone to bounce ideas off of. Thank you for this opportunity!"

"I feel lucky to have been paired with a mentor who has been generous with her time and wisdom. Our communication progressed from Skype calls to request-for-advice e-mails and a much-anticipated in-person meeting."

"The Mentorship Program provides a unique, no cost, opportunity for individuals seeking growth and development in this field and to consider their ongoing development with P2."

"Completing a Terms of Reference document at the beginning was great. We both knew what was expected of each other and we referred to our goals every time we met."

“I appreciated the opportunity to hear from a protégé who was interested in partnering with me specifically (based on the 'speed dating' intros during the first meeting and follow up correspondence). I think that helped make our relationship successful, because my protégé liked how I might approach the relationship and 'chose' me."

"We were able to share perspectives on career advice, successes and challenges. The program provided that set of ears for p2 and other aspects of life for the term. We will continue to chat post-Program as we made a connection!"

"Great program! An excellent learning opportunity for both mentors and protégés about how P2 is done in different industries."

The IAP2 Canada Mentorship Program connects those new to the P2 profession (protégés) with experienced P2 practitioners (mentors), who provide a sounding board, advice and general wisdom on best practices and potential pitfalls. The form of the mentoring relationship is determined by the individual pairings, developing their own “Terms of Reference” and framework for the nine-month program.

This program provides additional learning and professional development opportunities for those new to the field and offers practitioners the opportunity to live part of IAP2's Code of Ethics: "Support of the Practice".
