Welcome to the Mentoring Living Library / Bienvenue!

Come on in: All about this living library

The Mentoring Living Library is a grassroots initiative that provides young GofC professionals with the opportunity to informally connect with and learn from experienced employees. Mentees (or 'Books') are volunteers and have generously offered to share their time and individual stories with interested mentees. They also come from a wide range of levels and experience from within the federal government.

This library is evergreen: 'Books' will continue to be added over time.

Get your library card ready: How to 'check out' a mentor

Below, you will find all of the mentors participating in this living library as 'Books', along with their relevant details. You are welcome to scan through the collection on our shelf. When you find one who speaks to your interests and goals, you're ready for 'check out'! To borrow a 'Book', send them an email and schedule a one-on-one chat. The suggested amount of time for a chat is 30 minutes.

Just as you would with regular library books, please respect these Living Library 'Books'. Remember: they are volunteering their time and knowledge to you!
