Indigenous Mentoring Day Mentors


You will spend the day with your mentee and allow them to shadow and learn about your work at U of T, tour your department, share specific aspects of your job and/or facilitate internal interactions with your colleagues.

All mentors and mentees are invited to attend a lunch and networking event from 12 until 1:30 to meet new faces and learn more about U of T’s Indigenous communities, programs and initiatives.

For questions and assistance, please contact Yarlesha Anantharajah
