CFW Mentorship Mixer #1

Tuesday, February 18, 2020
1 p.m.-3 p.m.
Kochoff Hall-C
University Center (UC)

The Commission for Women is excited to announce our new mentorship initiative. The benefits of having a mentorship relationship are invaluable. We would like to help facilitate these relationships by pairing interested faculty and staff with one another, both as mentors and as mentees. Participation is open to all female-identified staff and faculty on campus who responded to campus-wide emails calling for participants in both roles. 

Some benefits for mentors include but are not limited to:

  • The satisfaction of sharing knowledge and experience

  • The chance to help development the next generation of academic and professional staff and faculty

  • An opportunity for productive reflection on your own leadership and enduring contribution

  • Greater understanding of the mentoring process and improved capacity to mentor

  • Enhanced self-esteem through recognition of continuing professional contribution

At this first Mentor Mixer Event, mentees will meet and get to know volunteer mentors. At the end of the program, mentees will be asked to submit their top three choices for mentors, and will be notified after the event who they matched with.

Light food and refreshments will be provided.
