The UCPBA Women’s Mentorship Program

Mentorship Program aims to provide female Mentees the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge of their industry, career development and advancement, and work-life balance from their Mentors. During this inaugural year of the Mentorship Program, Mentors and Mentees will be paired on the basis of their professional backgrounds and career goals in the following professions: law, accounting, finance, business and medicine. The UCPBA Committee will support and coordinate the program throughout the year, as well as provide guidelines and modules to promote effective mentorship.

Mentor Responsibilities

As a Mentor, you will have the opportunity to coach, motivate, empower and give back to the community by helping shape future female leaders. Mentors are asked to attend monthly meetings with their assigned Mentee. Mentors are expected to come to meetings prepared to discuss either the suggested module topic or engage in productive discussions to support the Mentee’s career development. The expected time commitment is at least two hours per month. Mentors are not expected to facilitate job offers or provide reference letters.

Mentees Will Be:

  • screened to ensure serious commitment to the program and the mentoring relationship;
  • required to have at least 3 years of work experience;
  • required to be a member of UCPBA (and pay applicable yearly member fee);
  • responsible for scheduling monthly meetings with the Mentors

Important Dates

The Mentorship Program will run from October 1st, 2021 to September 31st , 2022. A virtual event kick-off hosted by the UCPBA Committee will be held on the evening of September 30th, 2021, and attendance is mandatory to be eligible for the program. The UCBPA Committee will also organize two additional group events throughout the year. The deadline to submit your application is August 31, 2021.

If you’re interested in becoming a mentee, please back reply to with the following information:

  1. Your profession, title and industry
  2. How long you’ve been in the workforce (full-time)
  3. Why you want to be part of this program (1-2 sentences)
