Our approach

The Sponsorship Approach: We rely on industry leaders to sponsor emerging talented individuals that are the future of the electrical industry. People that are interested in investing their time and effort in this process. The sponsor vouches for them that they have the aspiration, drive and commitment for the program as well as pays the registration fee on behalf of the mentee. Being a mentee, particularly in this program, requires a commitment of time and energy. Upon being sponsored, each mentee completes an application, self-assessment and confirms he/she is willing to dedicate the time and effort to see this program through. Self-sponsorship is accepted but requires a reference or recommendation. 

Our Mentors complete a profile and self-assessment as well to identify their strengths. Those strengths and backgrounds are used to match with a mentee ensuring both get the most out of the experience.

How do you select the participants? A mentoring program requires a commitment of time and energy of both Mentors and Mentees. As such, we ask that you take the application process seriously. We will do our best to include all mentee applicants in the program. However, given that we have a limited number of openings, we will prioritize based on first come first serve. So, if you’re interested, don’t delay in sending in your application.

What am I committing to by signing up? By applying for the mentorship program, you are committing to your personal and professional development. You will be required to complete a self-assessment to identify development goals which will be used in matching you with a mentor. Following the virtual kick-off, you will be expected to schedule and complete six 60-minute meetings with your mentor over the course of 12 weeks (ideally meeting every 2 weeks), confirm your meetings with the program manager (not the details of the meeting, only confirm that the meetings were conducted) and attend a virtual celebratory program wrap-up. You are not alone in the journey – you will receive the tools and guidance for taking the steps you need to ensure a successful mentoring relationship.
