Welcome to the GC Mentorship Community / Bienvenue à la communauté du mentorat du GC

Who Are We? Qui sommes-nous?
The GC Mentorship Community on GCwiki is a grassroots initiative supported by the NCRYPN, the Federal Youth Network, and GC Students, that provides young GofC professionals and students with the opportunity to informally connect with, and learn from, experienced employees. This community consists of mentors, listed in the table below, who have graciously volunteered their time and stories to share with you, our interested mentees. The purpose of this initiative is to mirror the beauty of the "Living Library" trend, which aims to bring back the art of connecting with others by providing access to individuals who are willing to share their time, their energy, and their stories. By engaging with our Community, you are learning from the stories and experiences of a wide range of individuals in the Canadian public service.

Please note that this initiative is evergreen. Mentors are welcome to join and withdraw from the community as needed, as are mentees

La communauté de mentorat du GC sur le GCwiki est une initiative populaire soutenue par le RJPRCN, le Réseau fédéral des jeunes et les étudiants du GC, qui offre aux jeunes professionnels et étudiants du GC la possibilité d'entrer en contact de manière informelle avec des employés expérimentés et d'apprendre d'eux. Cette communauté se compose de mentors, énumérés dans le tableau ci-dessous, qui ont gracieusement offert leur temps et leurs histoires pour les partager avec vous, nos mentorés intéressés. Le but de cette initiative est de refléter la beauté de la tendance de la « Bibliothèque vivante », qui vise à ramener l'art de se connecter avec les autres en donnant accès à des personnes qui sont prêtes à partager leur temps, leur énergie et leurs histoires. En vous engageant dans notre communauté, vous découvrez les histoires et les expériences d'un large éventail de personnes travaillant dans la fonction publique canadienne.

Veuillez noter que cette initiative est évolutive. Les mentors sont invités à rejoindre et à se retirer de la communauté selon les besoins, tout comme les mentorés.
