The Influence Mentoring program is a new initiative aimed at building capacity, talent, and career opportunities for eligible students, who are committed to achieving their career goals. Influence is actively seeking partners and sponsors to help support the kickoff of this program as well as its future growth.
Being a Sponsor is a great opportunity to enhance your personal commitment and/or your organization’s commitment to connect with an exceptional pool of talent. As a key stakeholder in Canada’s evolving Indigenous workforce, sponsors demonstrate their support for core corporate and personal values such as workplace diversity and inclusion, successful team-building, respect for individual dignity, willingness to expand horizons and good governance.
Partners can help shape the program delivery to ensure greater harmony, understanding communities and successful employment outcomes. Partners will play a key role in the program’s success and will have many opportunities to support - from providing mentor and protégé candidates to providing speakers to any number of networking events. Partnerships are welcomed from a wide variety of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous corporations/industry, Post-secondary Institutions, and civic and Community Support groups.
