The WRISE team is working in tandem with our Mentoring Committee to revamp the mentoring programs in 2024.
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!
What is Peer Group Mentoring?
The WRISE Peer Group Mentoring program offers an opportunity to be both mentee and mentor at the same time. WRISE Peer Groups consist of 4-8 member and the program is designed such that members all have a chance to learn from each other while walking through our 7-session curriculum together. We know that business is better with diverse teams and so far it seems that mentoring can be too.
Peer Groups also offer a great way to build community in a smaller group setting. Some groups will meet in person with social distancing as the public health situation allows, and other groups will meet online through skype, google hangouts, and other conferencing tools.
Participation in Peer Group Mentoring requires an active WRISE membership which can take 24 hours or 1 business day to process if joining for the first time or renewing with a new email address.
Collaborate, challenge yourself, and strategize
- Connect with others and build skills in a supportive small-group environment.
- Discuss industry trends, experiences in the workplace, work-life integration, and topics important to you.
- Practice presenting and communicating your own expertise.
- Expand your knowledge of the renewable energy field by learning from your peers.
- Support and promote workplace equity and advancement with your group.
Who can participate?
Members of WRISE
How will this work?
When registration is open (a 1-month period), you will be able to sign up through the WRISE website. When registration ends, you will be assigned to a Peer Mentoring Group by the WRISE Mentoring Committee. Groups will be assigned based on the registration information you provide. Groups will meet (in-person or online) six times approximately once per month – choosing dates and times that work best for the group members.
Detailed Session Guides and Information will be provided for the whole group for each session. Each peer mentoring group will have a leader – your first meeting will be facilitated by this leader (you will have the chance to indicate if you’d like to be a group leader during registration). Group members will rotate the facilitator role for the remaining sessions.
When will I be matched with my group?
Registrants will be contacted in late September with their peer group.
