To Do

[[TODO]] Kick off peer mentoring: get members to post a peer profile with the topics that they’re interested in providing peer mentorship on, as well as how to get in touch / book some time (e.g. [[Calendly]] link)

If we’ve met in person, happy to connect on LinkedIn. Write something interesting in your connect message if we haven’t met :)

Happy to do an intro call (or coffee if you’re local to Vancouver): Book a time on my calendar »
