Peer Mentoring Groups

Women’s Enterprise Centre’s Peer Mentoring Groups are designed specifically to help women entrepreneurs address the issues and barriers they experience while making the transition to self-employment. These issues can range from creating a balance between work life and personal life, to facing a steep learning curve while developing new business skills.

The purpose of Peer Mentoring is to offer a safe and supportive environment for entrepreneurs who share similar concerns and levels of expertise to discuss their experiences and learn from each other.

Groups of six to eight women, all in the early stages of operating a business, meet for six, two hour long meetings with a mentor in their community.  The mentor will ensure that members work together-- fostering a cohesive and comfortable group of women, who are there to listen, brainstorm and provide moral support for each other. The mentor also helps mentees to overcome their barriers, build confidence, build new skills and knowledge and overall to succeed.
