Call for MentorsPWI has developed a Mentoring Program specifically for our members. The features of this program are described in the following document 201108_PWI Brussels Mentoring Program.pdf.
One of the key benefits of being a PWI Brussels Member is the ability and opportunity to network across boundaries and enhance skills and knowledge within a safe and supportive environment. There are many research papers focusing on female development and progression which have cited mentoring as one of the most significant contributions to individual success and career progression. Similar research also states that both the mentor and the mentee gain a great amount from the relationship, with learning and development experienced by both parties.
We have the Mentoring program concept, structure, process, milestones … Now we need Mentors… PWI Brussels would like to give to all PWI Members the opportunity of being a Mentor in our program.
There is no minimum age, seniority, professional level or educational qualifications to become a PWI Mentor. In our experience, any one of our members can be a mentor. You don’t have to be operating at board level to add value to someone else through a mentoring relationship. All we ask is that you have a level of personal and career experience that can be shared. You can also at the same time be both a mentor and a mentee.
How to apply
To be considered for the first PWI mentoring program starting in October, potential Mentors are now asked to complete the Mentor Application Form PWI Mentor application.doc and return it to email@example.com.
The deadline to apply as a Mentor is September 10th. This will allow you to attend the short Mentor training session (end-September) and to introduce yourself during the Mentoring Program Introduction Meetings (as described in the attached document). Of course you can become a candidate later for the following mentoring wave.
The Mentoring Program will be announced in the next edition of the PWI Magazine, which will be published in the first week of September.
Please review the document “PWI Brussels Mentoring Program” and let us have your feed-back before the 10th September by sending a mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking forward to collecting your applications as Mentors and we thank you in advance for your generous contribution to the PWI goals in favour of women’s professional progress.
Thanks and warm regards,
The Mentoring Program Team: Armelle, Alessandra and Melanie
