To apply for the mentoring program, please respond to the following questions and submit your completed application form by December 7, 2018. Mentor and mentee matches will be made through the beginning of January 2019, and the mentoring program will be launched through a webinar orientation by the end of January. The webinar will be recorded and available afterward for any program participants who are not able to participate in the live webinar. We will provide additional information and resources during our Fall Conference on December 4, 2018.
While the program will be informally structured, WICE recommends that mentors and mentees meet monthly. We expect participants to determine the best schedule for themselves and connect with each other at their convenience. The mentoring program will focus on career development, networking and building leadership skills. WICE will provide resources, guidance and activities for mentors and mentees. Social activities such as lunch or coffee may be pursued at the option of both parties and in accordance with the policies of participants’ respective employers.
**Mentors: WICE is seeking those with several years of experience (i.e., 5 or more years) within your field and/or your current organization to be mentors. WICE encourages anyone with interest in helping to develop other talented women in the WICE community who are newer to their fields, or those who have been established for some time but who wish to further develop professionally, to apply to be a mentor. Mentees and the broader WICE community will greatly benefit from your service! We also hope that mentors will expand their professional networks while learning from new perspectives and enhancing their coaching skills.
