The WRISE team is working in tandem with our Mentoring Committee to revamp the mentoring programs in 2025.
While these programs are paused, you can still access the Member Directory in the Member Center to find a mentor and make that connection. You can also post on our LinkedIn group or the forums in the Member Center.
Stay subscribed to emails to receive updates when the mentoring programs are relaunched. Thanks for your patience while we revamp these programs to better suit our community’s needs!
Our 1-on-1 program has been running since 2008 it was really sparked by demand from our membership. With the guidance of a national mentoring committee we developed our national mentoring program. This could be considered a more traditional mentoring program in that it focuses on matching two people – a mentee and a mentor. Mentees and Mentors register to participate, but the program is mentee driven – mentees are matched with a mentoring ambassador from our national committee to help them navigate the process and they begin by searching our member directory for a potential mentor. This program is ongoing and creating a mentoring partnership happens on a rolling basis throughout the year.
Peer Group Mentoring
After years of noticing trends in our existing 1-on-1 program, our national mentoring committee realized there was an opportunity to bring more people into the program that were looking for something a little bit different. This program is more structured and expects those participating to serve both as mentor and mentee by creating groups of 4-8 peers to work through a six session curriculum that builds in opportunities to share experiences, build community, and learn from everyone in the group.
