Tonya is an amazing person. She is very helpful, extremely kind and dedicated to the success of the mentee. Her approach and involvement with the whole process makes a huge difference. She provides a clear and engaging information session, tries to really understand the mentee’s career goals, looks carefully for mentors who might be a good fit with the mentee, introduces mentor and mentee and facilitates the first meeting, and ensures the mentorship is going smoothly. A big thanks to Tonya, the OCISO team, and to my mentor Sarah who has also been very helpful, knowledgeable, and created a great mentorship experience for me.
