Register by 31st July for the 8 week program to start in September 2021

Mentoring Circles is a form of group mentoring that encourages participants from all levels of an organization to propose and own a topic of interest. This unique setup gives motivated employees an avenue to grow within the organization, and opens the door for all employees, no matter seniority or department, to find or create a circle that motivates them. These circles will occur virtually depending on the community needs..

The Mentor Circle Program is an avenue to develop professional skills through a forum style - “Learn from each other in the groups” format. Individuals of diverse experience, with similar development interests gather to discuss and share their knowledge and experiences. This is a Professional & Leadership Development circle, that allows topic selection by the team to be polled from the participants?
