The new year is starting off with a bang– it’s National Mentoring Month!
Every January there is an annual mentoring campaign nationwide that is “dedicated to celebrating and elevating the mentoring movement.” We are using this month as an opportunity to thank all of our mentors, recognize the positive impact that mentorship has on women, and engage with new mentors and mentees who are interested in joining our network!
As a way of celebrating our amazing mentors, we are going to be featuring videos about why they do what they do. Mentorship is powerful for both mentors and mentees– and it’s also hugely impactful in supporting future women leaders.
We would love to hear why you pass your torch!
Mentees– This is your opportunity to thank your mentors!
There’s no better way to showcase the impact of mentoring than to hear stories from mentees about how their mentors have supported them.
Mentees, we are inviting you to join us in celebrating National Mentoring Month by making a short video thanking one of your mentors and speaking to how mentoring has helped you.
Every woman deserves a mentor as she navigates her education and career goals. There are always more women who could benefit from mentorship, and there is always a need for more mentors!
Think back and remember some of your first mentoring relationships, formal or informal. Chances are, that person helped you navigate your career in times of confusion and acted as a sounding board in times of stress. You have everything it takes to provide that kind of guidance for someone else, and we want you to join us and make that possible!
