Since 2001, iSisters Technology Mentoring has been a leader in community-based technology learning and development. Our education programs are designed and delivered to empower women (often young mothers) who may be unemployed, have limited education, and/or depend on government services for basic needs.
For the past 15 years our mission has been to develop technology education, and mentorship programs for women in collaboration with our community partners. Together, we aim to build awareness, enhance opportunities, and to connect women in need with skills and knowledge through mentoring.
iSisters Technology Mentoring, a leader in technology learning and development, helps empower women in need to live better lives, create brighter futures and build stronger communities.
Being Learner Focused
The importance of continous development and growth is central to our organisation. We believe this applies to our students, our staff, our volunteers and our board. Our number focus is on our learners when making decisions.
We encourage diversity within the organization. Healthy, transparent discussions are at the centre of this value as well as treating others with dignity and respect.
Our goal is to achieve outstanding results in our governance, our programs, our operations and in all our relationships.
Being Community Oriented
Community engagement and support are integral to our success. Through relationships we seek to understand and meet the evolving needs of partners and learners and continue to make a difference.
We take ownership for our behaviour, decisions and actions. We make decisions and operate in a manner reflective of our goals and values.
