YWiB SFU Programs
What is the SOUL Mentorship Program?
SOUL stands for Supporting Our University Leaders. The SOUL mentorship program provides an interactive learning environment for SFU’s female leaders while focusing on facilitated growth and relationship building within SFU as well as the broader professional community.
What is the WISE Development Program?
WISE stands for Women Investing in Skills and Experience. We provide opportunities for young women to bridge the path and lower the barriers between women and the technology industry. Our main mission is to promote personal development by allowing members to learn and enhance their skills through workshops, socials, and company office tours. Each workshop series will focus on different industry-relevant skills.
What is the CONNECT Program?
CONNECT is YWiB SFU’s philanthropy based initiative that utilizes YWiB SFU’s resources to make an impact in our immediate community. Through workshops, partnerships, volunteer opportunities, and events, CONNECT members will create long-lasting relationships with community based non-profit organizations and charities by volunteering their time and effort.
What is the SPARK Program?
SPARK stands for Skills, Passions And Real "K"onnections. As our newest program, SPARK was created as the starting point for young women to network and become involved with the YWiB university community. The purpose of SPARK is to ignite engagement and passion for being a woman in business. Members of SPARK attend different events, socials and workshops that will introduce them to new people, ideas and businesses.
