Mentorship Programs

New IROs may find the profession daunting at first due to its complex and multidisciplinary nature. That is why the CIRI Ontario, Québec and British Columbia chapters offer a Mentorship Program to their members.

These programs pair leading IR professionals (mentors) with those fairly new to IR (protégés) for strategic one-on-one meetings to help the protégé achieve specific career development goals. While working towards the protégé’s goals, the mentorship team shares ideas, perspectives and experiences. Each team meets several times over six months.

The Ontario, Québec and British Columbia programs offer mentors a rewarding leadership experience, while providing all participants the benefits of connecting with another colleague in the profession.

The Rewards of Giving

I've enjoyed my participation as a mentor, both for the opportunity to give something back to IR, and because working through issues with someone else is a learning experience for me as well. ”
