PAAC Ontario is excited to announce our upcoming Women In Public Affairs + Diversity, Equity and Inclusion mentorship event! As part of PAAC Ontario's commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, this event will support diverse young public affairs professionals to build the skills and connections they need for a successful career journey.

We know that statistically, women, people of colour, and gender diverse professionals are more likely to face barriers in their professional growth. This event aims to tackle some of those barriers and challenges by creating a supportive network.

Mentees will be paired with diverse professionals from a variety of fields working in public affairs, marketing, and communications, including health care, media, energy, finance and banking.

Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to network with experienced public affairs professionals and connect with a mentor. The event will include breakout sessions of mentees and mentors, to enable safe, candid and informal conversations.
