The University of Toronto will be hosting Indigenous Mentoring Day (IMD) on February 21, 2019.
This initiative matches members of the public who identify as Indigenous / Aboriginal Peoples of North America with experienced professionals from all three University of Toronto campuses. This experiential learning opportunity provides job seekers with unique career insights about working at U of T and its Indigenous community.
The Mentee Experience (Job Seekers)
You will spend the day learning and experiencing a career you’re interested in. Mentees will job-shadow for the day, allowing them to ask questions and experience firsthand what a day in the life of their desired career has to offer.
The Mentor Experience (Current Employees)
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 mentees will be entered into U of T’s talent pool and considered for future career opportunities at the University as applicable.
The University of Toronto embraces the opportunity to engage with Indigenous communities and, together, lead the process of reconciliation. Hiring more Indigenous staff and recruiting more Indigenous students is an important step towards building an inclusive community where all members flourish.
