mentorinG Program

LET'S LEARN FROM EACH OTHER.

No matter where you are in your career or life, the right mentor can energize you and provide counsel when you need it. And being a mentor can gives you the chance to share what you’ve learned with others, gain new perspectives as you learn from your mentee, and deepen your leadership skills. 
The goal of our mentorship program is not just to give our careers a boost, but also to support each other and share strategies for how to fight the racism, transphobia, sexism, classism, etc. which often hold our careers back. Keeping our intersectional approach in mind, we not only want to boost our careers, but also empower each other and share strategies how to fight racism, transphobia, sexism, classism etc, that often hold our careers back.

We are now in the process of creating a network of mentors and mentees ready to start our program. Want to get involved? Reach out to us at info@biwoc-rising.org! Please note it may take some time for us to match you with a mentor/mentee as we want to assess the individual needs of each participant. We are also aware that lack of time is an issue in our communities and therefore offer different formats to make participation more accessible. 

The planned formats are:

One mentee and one mentor with similar areas of interest who can support and guide one another. The experience level of each person can vary. We will contact each person before we pair a tandem team.

This format allows one mentor to take multiple mentees under their wing. We will help you to organise a workshop or you simply meet casualy over a coffee and go from there.

This event in a speed dating format will allow mentees to meet many mentors, while rotating in 5-min intervals, and peppering them with questions. Each event will have a topic, e.g. building a business, finance etc.

Every now and then we will get some badass women* together to share their professional journeys, which obstacles they faced, and how they overcame them.
