“Women in Parity’s mentorship program meets the needs of women seeking to advance their careers, even though they have already reached a managerial level. The training program is very well adapted. It forces you to reflect on themes that are traditionally less prioritized by women, yet are essential to achieving higher levels of leadership.”
