Mentorship Needs in the Ontario Manufacturing Industry

This project will identify the necessary components for a high-quality mentorship program for workers in the Ontario manufacturing industry. Through review of existing mentorship programs, interviews with mentors and mentees, and a job analysis procedure for the mentor role, this research will assess the mentoring needs of manufacturing workers. The project will produce a task-based training guide for mentors so that they can most effectively engage with mentees in order to maximize recruitment and retention. The project will focus specifically on creating a mentorship program to best support underrepresented groups in the industry such as women, young workers and members of racialized groups. This work will contribute to Trillium core program of work that
