This year, we’re excited to announce that UBC Okanagan faculty will have the opportunity to participate in the 2023-24 Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) Asia Pacific Women in Leadership (APWiL) Mentoring Program, beginning November 2023.
This opportunity pairs mentees with experienced mentors from APRU member universities for a year-long program focusing on empowerment, professional growth, and development to support aspiring APRU women leaders. Through one-on-one mentorship as well as seminars and hands-on workshops featuring diverse leaders, participants will explore tools and methods for overcoming barriers facing women in leadership and gain skills and knowledge to support their career goals.
All interested faculty are encouraged to apply. We can select up to two mentors and two mentees from our campus to represent UBC. This will be the first year our campus is participating in the program. The deadline for nominating mentors and mentees is June 9, 2023.
If you are interested in participating as a mentor or mentee, contact:
Associate Director, Campus Internationalization
More information about the program and the nomination process can be found at www.apru.org/event/apwil-mentoring-program.
