Does your New Year’s resolution involve growing both personally and professionally? How about giving back? Well you’re in luck!
Two Ten WIFI has posted applications for the 2015 WIFI Mentoring Program for women in the footwear industry. The goal of the program is to inspire women with varying levels of experience in the industry by pairing them with seasoned professionals. Applications are due by January 31st. The program cycle lasts for one year and ONLY accepts applications during the month of January.
Here’s what past mentee Jocelyn Briggs had to say about her experience in the program: “My mentor and I try to keep in touch on a relatively consistent basis. We email one another throughout the week and make time to get together for breakfast or lunch each month.” Jocelyn and her mentor, Dionne, even ran a road race together this year!
You can find the applications for both mentees and mentors here. Please remember to read the parameters included on the application to make sure that you can devote the necessary amount of time to the program for a full year.
Mentees and mentors are notified of their acceptance and matches in February and the program begins in March.
