A team of researchers, led by Dr. Rupa Banerjee at Ryerson University, are conducting a study on how career advice and guidance affects the employment outcomes of immigrant women professionals.

If you work in a position in which you recruit, train and/or mentor immigrant women professionals, then you are invited to take part in an individual interview (around 30 minutes), over the phone or Zoom.

Immigrant women professionals have been defined within this research project as women who have immigrated to Canada, have been here for 0-10 years and hold some form of post-secondary education. In addition, this project will be Toronto-focused and the research team is aiming to recruit key informants in and around the GTA.

Your interview responses will be kept strictly confidential and will be anonymized in all reports that result from this study.  Please note that you will not be representing your organization; instead the researchers want to hear about your personal insights and experiences of providing mentorship and guidance, so that they can compile best practices to improve the career transitions of immigrant women.

This study is a joint investigation between Dr. Banerjee, the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC), World Education Services (WES) and the Intercultural Skills Lab at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto.
