2nd WiDS Annual Professional Development Speed Mentoring & Esprit de Corps Magazine's Breaking Down the Barricades Reception

Due to the overwhelming success of last year's Speed Mentoring event, WiDS is pleased to invite you to a repeat of this same Professional Development Event! Similar to speed dating, speed mentoring offers you the chance to have direct access and authentic conversations with a selection of high-calibre mentors from various defence and security fields.  Starting at 3 pm, you will have 15-minute sessions with mentors, both men and women, during which you will be able to ask questions and benefit from their advice and experiences. 

Life has many priorities and we often neglect our own career aspirations and coaching opportunities. Regardless of where you are in your career, these discussions may help you answer burning careeer questions or even provide valuable insight that will help you to take that next step or obtain the necessary skills and competencies to get you where you want to go. 

Bring your enthusiasm and your most important career questions to Ottawa City Hall on Monday, April 9th. WiDS' speed mentors are ready to help you hit the ground running! Advance registration is required. 'Register Here' to purchase your ticket. 

After the event, you are cordially invited to attend Esprit de Corps Magazine's Breaking Down the Barricades reception, which recognizes 2018's Top 20 Women in Defence. The reception will take place in the same venue, from 5-8 pm and will feature live music and a selection of delicacies provided by a number of embassies. The reception is free of charge with your speed mentoring ticket!
