WPT Pub Night: Mentoring in a virtual world

Where: Online

When: Wednesday Sept 23, 7-9PM

Register: https://wptvirtualpubnightsep23.eventbrite.ca

As our first event of the year, it will be an introduction to this season’s theme of Managing your Career in a Pandemic. We will be looking at different topics and how to continue to survive and thrive in a virtual world. With fewer informal opportunities for communication at work, how do you get the mentorship and advice you need, manage the additional challenges at home and find new opportunities? We will explore these topics in a mix of panels and pubnights over the season.

Our first pubnight will be looking at mentorship. We will start with a discussion on the values of mentoring to both the mentor and the mentee, featuring Palvashah Durrani and Andrea Herscovich. They will talk about their experiences as mentor and mentee and the impact it has had. We will then move into breakout rooms for networking and small group discussions on mentoring, including considerations for online mentoring.

Zoom details, mocktail / cocktail recipe and hors d’oeurves recipe will be provided to registered attendees closer to the event.
