Womentoring:  It's what we do!
 
 

Womentoring  is a community-building mentoring program that develops women's skills, confidence and local network through an integrated and empowering  nine-month calendar of workshops, dinners, and events.

 

Started in 2006, Womentoring is intended to foster women’s personal, professional, and civic leadership.  Womentoring enables women to live meaningful lives by committing time and energy to their own growth as well as that of others.  Womentum believes that when women define their own goals and are inspired through a mentoring relationship, they become empowered leaders within their community.

 

The first nine-month Womentoring program launched in September 2007 with eight mentor/mentee pairs.  The program now supports double that each year.  Mentoring pairs attend small group dinners, workshops, and events during the program, starting with a Kick-off in September and concluding with a Harvest Celebration in May.  The Harvest is meant to share what the seeds of Womentoring have grown, but not to close the mentoring relationship - many pairs stay connected years after participating in Womentoring.

 

Womentum uses skill sets and goals to match Mentor/Mentee pairs, and each pair discusses their skills and interests to set positive outcomes they will seek together through the mentoring process. Most Womentoring participants have indicated they successfully completed at least one of their goals during the session. As one past participant noted, “By watching my mentor’s diversity of experience, I realized that it is possible to fit many lifetimes into one – that I could achieve professionally and still retain a well-rounded personal life.”

 

With a growing network of over 300 Womentoring Alumnae, we have a created bonded community of supportive, informed, and empowered women and leaders.  Womentoring graduates are currently serving in elected office, running local non-profits, starting businesses, and pursuing creative endeavors, not only for personal enrichment and fulfillment, but for the advancement and benefit of our community, our local economy, our families, and our culture.

Womentoring participants continue to connect and network beyond thier 9-month program.  Wometum offers regular gatherings such as small group dinners, book groups, and "action philantropy" days where program Alumnae continue the dialogue of leadership, individuality, and support.  Keeping Alumnae engaged and connected brings about positive results as they enact their intellectual, philanthropic, and creative spirit to effectuate meaningful social change among their colleagues, constituents, children, and community.
