The Rosie Peer Group Mentoring Program
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The Rosie Peer Group Mentoring Program opens doors for Canadian women who want to advance their careers in STEM, skilled trades or leadership. The Prosperity Project has created this Peer Group Program to provide women with the opportunity to join a diverse, and influential community of like-minded women who are interested in skills development and broadening their personal and professional networks.
Mentoring matters – it helps you navigate your career, explore new ideas and identify growth opportunities. Peer mentoring provides you with the opportunity to share your experiences and subject matter expertise with peers in an open and trusted environment. Peer mentoring supports career growth, improved communication skills, greater productivity, confidence, and job satisfaction. Our peer groups bring women together based on career stage (entry level, mid-career and senior level) and profession: STEM, skilled trades, and leadership. Each peer group’s facilitator brings their own experience in STEM, skilled trades or leadership to the table. In this way, you can be comfortable connecting and developing with like-minded peers who share similar backgrounds and experiences. When applying, please select the peer group you are interested in joining. The Rosie team will then select 8-10 participants that best match the group’s criteria, setting you up for success!
The Rosie Peer Group Mentoring Program is a 12-month program. It is expected that groups will meet monthly for 2 hours. We recommend that the meeting cadence be set in the kickoff meeting.

The Rosie Peer Group Mentoring Program is a virtual pan-Canadian program. By offering the Peer Group Program virtually, participants gain access to peers who would otherwise not be available because of geographic limitations. However, you and your group are welcome to get together socially at any time!
