Mentor Fair

As part of the inaugural RISE conference, CABJ and CJOC have teamed up with the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) to create a mentorship fair specifically geared to help empower young BIPOC journalists in their careers. We know that mentorship is a powerful tool in building a more equitable journalism industry. That's why all of our mentors are wise and experienced BIPOC journalists, many of whom have helped young journalists in the CAJ's mentorship program. They would be happy to answer any questions you might have (especially the difficult ones!) 

Sign up for the Mentor Fair HERE.
