Call for Speed Mentors

SPEED MENTOR APPLICATION DEADLINE: MARCH 30, 2018

MENTORING STRUCTURE

Each mentoring session will last for approximately 15 minutes within a 1 hour session. Mentors will be arranged in circles and mentees will randomly select a seat and thus pair with their first mentor. A host will introduce each session with an explanation of mentoring ‘ground rules’ and will keep time, and signal (ringing a bell) to transition to the next mentee. Our approach will focus on using your own experience to support and offer guidance rather than matching up mentors/mentees in specific fields. We leave it to alchemy on the day to see who you will mentor.

MENTORING TIPS

WOW mentees inlude women of all ages and experiences, including those still enrolled in college.

The mentees will be asked to:

Think about 2 or 3 problems/issues/challenges they would like to address during the session, to develop a brief description of each problem/issue/challenge, to place the problem in the context of their personal goals, priorities, and values and to try to identify any options to try and the advantages and disadvantages of these options.
