The Women’s Network Leadership Mentoring initiative will pair experienced senior leaders with those who are new to their leadership positions or who aspire to higher levels of leadership. Mentors should have at least 4 years of experience in a leadership position in higher education. The mentee should be the primary driver of the mentoring relationship as an emerging leader on campus. We will not prescribe a specific structure to the relationship, but given the busy schedules of women leaders we suggest that mentees and mentors schedule regular meetings, calls, or coffee/lunch times, with at least one discussion per month. Mentees might provide topics, questions, and goals for each meeting to make best use of these. Mentoring relationships should be flexible and adapt to the needs of the mentee, and the length of these relationships will vary. Although mentors act as advisors, we expect that they too will benefit from the relationship.
Interested mentors and mentees should complete this google form. We’ll contact you when a pairing is available or if we have questions to facilitate finding a match.
