Mentorship Program Launch

The ELSE Mentorship Program Launch held on July 6th at the Centre for Social Innovation in Toronto was a HUGE success! We brought together an incredible mix of mentors & mentees for an interactive evening of networking, group discussions, and Q&A on key topics essential for upcoming professionals to embark on a career in this industry.

Targeting students, recent graduates and young professionals less than 35 years of age, this first-of-its-kind program in Canada matches mentees with two experienced industry professionals for one-hour in-person sessions. If you haven’t signed up already, learn more about the program today!
