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.
