How it Works
WIRe mentorship provides the opportunity to build life-long relationships and share new perspectives.
WIRe currently offers locally-matched mentoring opportunities in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, London, New York, San Francisco, and Sydney as well as remote opportunties. If you don’t live in one of the cities listed, you may request a “virtual” mentor on your application, although we’ll do our best to find a mentor in your local market.
Throughout the program, mentees leverage the success of their mentor by asking questions about work/life balance, professional growth and more, while mentors have an opportunity to grow their leadership and mentoring skills in a one-to-one environment. And if you can make it, our in-person networking events are a great place to meet up as well.
WIRe’s mentoring program is an opportunity to build life-long relationships, and share new perspectives. We’re thrilled that this program plays an instrumental role in bringing up the next generation of woman researchers and executives.
Mentorship is a 12-month program and we'll work closely with you to ensure the best match.
Our global roster of mentors are busy CEOs, senior level executives and entrepreneurs, making our mentoring program a highly competitive process. Each year we receive more than twice the mentee applications than we can match so we encourage you to use your application to put your best foot forward! Mentors select their mentees based on goals, interests, experience and, in some cases, location.
Our mentors and mentees will work together over the course of a full year to build lasting, supportive relationships.
We require that participants commit to a 12-month program, meeting monthly for 1-2 hours per meeting, plus a minimum of six hours via phone/Skype and/or email coaching, with the goal of monthly contact. Updates submitted by you during the first month of the program and every two months thereafter help us ensure the success of the match.
