Mentorship Program

The WICT Network: Virginia Mentorship Program

Our mentoring program pairs individuals (mentees) with one-on-one support from mentors across the industry. The program offers group cohort meetings to provide a variety of tools throughout the program to enhance your career goals. Mentees will have the opportunity to build a relationship with their mentor, in addition to the entire cohort.

A mentoring partnership can be an enriching experience, providing development of your leadership and communication skills, while contributing to your career advancement.

Mentoring can also give you a great overall sense of personal satisfaction, knowing that you are helping someone else learn and grow on a professional and personal level.

We invite you to join the program to learn techniques that will help you take the initiative in your career planning and set goals to help raise your professional bar.
