The CJPAC Women in Politics Mentorship Program is designed to connect Jewish women (18+) who are interested in becoming more involved in the political process, either personally or professionally, with Jewish mentors who have senior experience in politics, government and communications. This cohort of the WiP Mentorship Program is open to applicants from across Canada. The program will run from March to December 2022. Due to COVID-19 we will be running our national meetings and programming virtually. Mentee/mentor pairings are welcome to have in-person meetings based on participants’ comfort levels and regional public health orders. When it becomes safe to resume in-person gatherings, we will consider reverting some aspects of our regional program to be in person.
