6 Month Program STARTS April 5th, 2017
Our six month WIL Group Mentorship Program matches rising star young women with women mentors from diverse industries from the business community to develop leadership skills and build confidence. Applicants are interviewed and put into a Leadership Pod with 6-9 other mentors & mentees selectively matched based on field of interest, personality and professional experience. The cohort will meet in person 4 times person and 1 time through a webinar. Our past results are inspiring and our ripple effect is far reaching:
90% took more responsibilities at work
40% new contacts lead to job or business
90% of mentees confidence improved
Since launching our WIL Mentorship Program in 2008, our program has made a real difference in the lives of 1300+ women who have been through the program and in the workplace of participating organizations. With each cohort, we are building a supportive community of professional women from diverse industries and backgrounds who want to support each other in their leadership journey. Be part of an amazing program creating positive change in the leadership and carer development of women.

“Being a WIL Mentor this year has been a wonderful experience. The program exceeded my expectations with valuable content on skill-building, self-awareness, public speaking and more. I strongly feel the skills that women need moving forward aren't technical abilities, but the ability to stand solid in life (self-management), to make informed decisions true to oneself (authenticity), and to seek guidance when feeling stuck (vulnerability). This mentoring program develops all three areas through learning. It's a wonderful chance to share and see how common our struggles are as modern women. The in-person workshops were as powerful as the 1:1 mentoring to create a safe, supportive environment in a group setting. Many of us completed the program having made lasting connections and having gained a new horizon for our future.” Jessica Manca, Mentor

When will I be matched?
We gather as many Mentor candidates as possible to provide the best match. Typically matching is done during March. Prior to that you will be contacted to arrange a time in early March for an interview.
