It’s National Mentoring Month! I’ve always viewed mentorship as a powerful force for good, which is why I’ve been such an advocate for informal and formal mentorship for years.

In 2022, I partnered with my alma mater, Brock University, to create a mentorship program for women leaders. Since then, the Deborah Rosati Women in Leadership Mentorship Program has supported two cohorts of women by matching them with quality mentors from the university community. The program is designed to create and sustain an inclusive mentoring community that fosters diversified knowledge, offers opportunities to learn from colleagues and creates meaningful connections across the campus and beyond. It’s an initiative I’m proud to support, knowing the impact that mentors had on my own career. I see it as my opportunity to give back.

Excited for cohort #2 to kick off on January 27th. Here’s more information on the program:
