Women Guiding Women Mentorship and Leadership Training Program

Since January 2007, WGW has offered a semester-long program, connecting women students with women mentors in various fields of study and work. 

As a protégée you’ll define your career goals, grow your self-confidence and develop lasting relationships with mentors.

As a mentor, you’ll develop your leadership skills and have numerous professional development and networking opportunities.

Goals of Women Guiding Women:

  • to create positive mentoring relationships between UCalgary women students and women from the Calgary community.
  • to provide participants women-specific, collaborative leadership skills that help them better understand their career goals, increase their self-esteem and leadership potential, and empower them to make authentic life decisions.
  • to develop women's networking circles of successful women in the workforce as well as female students from a range of disciplines.

Applications for Women Guiding Women are currently closed.
