In an April 12th article by the Globe and Mail, the mentorship between university student Scott Henry, participant in the CEO x 1 Day and his mentor CEO, David Labistour from Mountain Equipment Co-op, was profiled and used as an example of the beneficial mentorship relationship.
Leah Hamilton, provided comment about Mount Royal’s Harry G. Schaefer Mentorship Program and the findings regarding her research on mentorship:
“….the mentees had more confidence to seek out jobs, build relationships and felt more supported, compared to those who weren’t in mentorship programs.
The mentors also benefited from “intergenerational learning,” and a better understanding of the millennial generation, Ms. Hamilton says.
“The mentors said ‘wow, this really gave me an opportunity to learn from this younger generation. Now I get them more and understand what they’re looking for in the work force and the challenges they face.’”
She says some of the companies involved in the school’s Harry G. Schaefer Mentorship Program, which funded the research, are now rethinking their recruitment strategies and ways to increase employee retention.”

Institutional Biography and Knowledge Dissemination: An Analysis of Canadian Business School Faculty (February 12, 2016 David Finch, Norm O’Reilly, David Deephouse, William Fister, Loren Falkenberg, Mackenzie Strong)
“A biographical analysis of 740 faculty members from 13 elite and non-elite Canadian business schools suggests that different knowledge dissemination activities are anchored in a faculty member’s scholar’s socialization and are influenced by both individual and contextual factors. Results suggest that the divide between academics and practitioners in business schools can be bridged with individual faculty members who possess both academic and professional qualifications.”
