The Betty-Ann Heggie Womentorship Program, created in partnership with the University of Saskatchewanʼs Edward's School of Business was Betty Annʼs flagship endeavor, and remains a core pillar of her Foundation.
The concept is simple yet transformative for the program’s participants. By matching seasoned female professionals with less experienced post-secondary graduates, both benefit. Established businesswomen find an opportunity to reflect on personal milestones and successes as they offer advice and support to their protégés, They, in turn, gain confidence and guidance as they navigate their professional careers.
Not surprisingly, this one-year program often results in life-long friendships. This program also had the distinction of hosting four remarkable Afghani women, whose recent trip to Canada was designed to cultivate their leadership skills. Through the Womentorship Program, these women were able to spend nearly four weeks with notable Saskatchewan-based female professionals, whose leadership backgrounds provided them with professional insight and personal encouragement.
