Celebrating Mentorship Month at BIC!

Throughout January we observe Mentorship Month, where we come together to celebrate the power of intentional relationships and the importance of mentorship in our society.  

At BIC, we believe that development goes beyond just training. Through the work of collaborative, cross-functional teams, we are able to achieve more together than we can alone. By sharing ideas, thoughts and perspectives with each other, we’re able to come together to drive BIC forward and positively influence others.  

Since the launch of our global program in 2017, 470+ members have participated in our mentorship program at BIC and over 2,800 mentoring hours have been reported! Through our programs, we provide our business leaders and team members with the skills they’ll need to continue driving BIC forward by... 

  • Increasing cross functional connections  
  • Promoting knowledge sharing and building a robust global learning network  
  • Driving engagement across regions  
  • Reinforcing our learning culture
