Mentoring Program

MAY TO OCTOBER 2019

The WICT DC/BALT Mentoring Program is a great opportunity for both emerging and established professionals to assist in personal and professional development through a formalized mentoring relationship.

“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to them their own.”

— Benjamin Disraeli

The Mentoring Program matches selected mentees with mentors based on various competencies as well as compatibility regarding the individual’s professional development needs.

The formal program lasts 6 months and includes kickoff in April, a July mid-point, panel and webinar sessions, as well as an October graduation at the prestigious PowerBrokers event.

Mentee Reviews

What people say?

In the short 6 months that I've been a part of the Mentorship program, my life has completely changed. In the context of our group meetings, I've been accountable to my fellow mentees to learn more about our industry and actively engage with issues that affect women in the workplace. With the guidance of my mentor, Rob Stoddard, I've grown into a more confident, capable, and connect individual.
SAM
2017 mentee
Before the Mentor Program, I had difficulty setting goals. I was focusing on my weaknesses and on where my career wasn't going, rather than figuring out a solution. My mentor gave positive professional and personal advice that allowed me to focus on my goals with a new mindset. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. The entire experience continues to push me to be fearless in my professional and personal pursuits.
