Life Sciences Ontario Mentorship Hub

We are proud to announce a new mentorship opportunity: “Office Hours” through our Ten Thousand Coffees Mentorship Platform. Connect with small groups of Life Sciences Ontario Mentorship Hub to share your experiences and advice, and have impactful conversations around the life sciences topics they care about.

4 reasons to host your first Office Hours event:

  1. Members value your insight on your career journey and want to connect with you.
  2. This is your chance to share updates and take the pulse on important issues.
  3. Your Office Hour event allows you to give back to the community by offering advice and guidance to those who need it most.
  4. You just need to show up and engage – we take care of the registration, and promotion, and even send you questions that your audience wants to ask you ahead of time.
