“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground.  Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it…” ~ Wilferd Peterson

Mentorship is a key ingredient in career success. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to have had mentors in my life help guide me along my path. Having launched our 2018 ANNISAA Mentorship Program earlier this month, and with Volunteer Week last week, I would like to send out a special thank you to all our Mentors who volunteered to give back and support the rising stars of our next generation of Muslim women leaders. 

This year, we have 10 successful, experienced female Muslim women Mentors in GTA who are making a difference in the lives of other women via our program. Our mentors hail from diverse sectors including technology, accounting, financial services, engineering, health and safety, healthcare, education, marketing, business and coaching. All have experienced the how-tos of successfully navigating one’s career and the majority know how to work in a male-dominated environment and thrive. 

Our mentorship program is at the heart of what we do at ANNISAA and without our Mentors, the program would not be possible. Also, a big thank you to our Program Partners for your continued generous support. And heartfelt thank you to our Mentorship Director leading the program across the city. We thank you all for your part in creating a nurturing and supportive community to empower Muslim women to lead.
