The Women’s Mentorship Program is a unique professional development opportunity for women managers employed in the financial co-operatives sector. Since 2002, 254 women credit union managers from 27 countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas have participated in the program. The goal of the program is to enhance participants’ management skills and knowledge as well as significantly increase confidence and resolve to become equal contributors in the workforce. Successful applicants will participate in 2 ½ weeks of classroom training in Ottawa, and will be matched with a Canadian Credit Union for 1 ½ weeks to be mentored by a General Manager or Branch Manager.
The next program is scheduled for May 23 to June 19, 2020. The deadline to apply has been extended to November 3rd, 2019. For more details or to apply, download the five documents below and follow the instructions in the application form.
