Give Your Development a Boost Through Our New Mentoring Circles Program

The WICT Southwest Chapter is pleased to offer the opportunity to join the Mentoring Circles program.  The program has been used in other chapters with great success, and we are excited to bring it to Southwest's membership.


The 2017 program is Navigation: Plot my Course...Arrive at my Destination


There are 5 key topics within this program:

  • Strategy Development
  • Career Value
  • Network Development
  • Influence
  • Relationship Building

LD Bennett will be facilitating the course, which consists of 6 monthly meetings of your Circle.  LD has 30+ years of experience in the leadership development and organizational effectiveness.  She leads leadership development, communications for corporate, nonprofit and federal agency initiatives.


There is a time commitment as either a mentee or mentor.  This includes a 3 hour kick-off program with all of the circles together in person in June, followed by 90 minute sessions over lunch in July, August, September and October.  The wrap-up in November will again be a longer session.  Homework will be assigned each month as well. 


If you have interest in joining this mentorship program in its inaugural year, please click on one of the application links below, depending on if you prefer to participate as a mentee or as a mentor.

Deadline to sign-up has been extended to May 1st, 2017! Don't delay! 

We have secured a way that if necessary, the introduction which was originally only an in-person session, allows you NOW TO PARTICIPATE REMOTELY!  The Southwest Chapter acknowledges there will be a few situations where remote attendance is needed for a limited few.  Indeed, the optimal situation is to attend the launch (kickoff) in-person.
