Being a mentor for The Forum of Women Entrepreneurs (FWE) is one that I hold close to my heart. I’ve been a member of FWE since 2008, starting as a mentee receiving guidance from the mentors I connected with during the program that year. The insight, resources and sense of community that I received from them was invaluable and is often reflected in so much of my work today.
Now, I have been volunteering my time as a mentor for women in business for 5 years. The Forum is a Canadian-based charity that educates and connects women entrepreneurs with others throughout Canada, who are able to offer the guidance, support, and resources they need to help them thrive in business. They are a true testament of the good that comes from women supporting other women.
