Why Should I Participate in Mentorship?

There are many benefits to participating in a mentorship program. Studies have shown that mentorship facilitates leadership, can foster a sense of belonging, increases industry knowledge, leads to achieving personal career gains and so much more. A mentorship can be mutually beneficial, with both the mentor and mentee sharing thoughts, ideas and experiences, leading to new perspectives and fresh ideas. Participating in mentorship can also increase emotional intelligence, improve productivity and help you feel more confident. The benefits of participating in mentorship far outweigh any potential drawbacks, so why not give it a shot? Check out our mentorship highlight reel above!
