Mentors and mentees are hand-paired each year to maximize the WISE Within Los Angeles experience and encourage a mentorship relationship that continues long after the WISE Within program has ended. Over the course of a six-month guided program, mentor and mentee pairings meet, at the minimum, monthly to discuss personal and career goals, strengths, weaknesses and other areas of interest. Each WISE Within cycle also includes three group sessions — kick-off, mid-point and wrap-up — that brings each year's pairings together as a group for networking and to share best practices.
Integrated Approach to Mentoring Tomorrow’s Leaders
The national signature program of WISE, WISE Within is an integrated, guided mentoring program with a proven track record of providing valuable career resources. WISE Within offers a truly unique opportunity to accelerate professional development by connecting mid-level professional women to senior executives through facilitated group sessions, personal one-to-one mentoring and national online resources.
Tap into the WISE National Knowledge Base
WISE members look to trusted resources to help unlock the knowledge needed to respond to challenges and advance their careers. WISE Within provides access to the experience of our successful senior-level members and leverages the power of mentorship to help participants develop the potential within. WISE Within mentors are industry leaders, decision makers and influencers. They represent key sports and events industry organizations and have included WISE Women of the Year honorees.
Make Connections, Build Relationships
WISE Within gives mentoring pairs the platform to engage in a confidential and reciprocal professional one-to-one relationship. Our group sessions and online network offer easy access for connecting with peers and building strong relationships beyond the mentoring partner. After successfully completing the program, an alumni group extends the network to include participants from previous years.
Experience the Power of Mentorship
The mentoring relationship benefits both the mentee and mentor. WISE Within gives dedicated mid-level professional women valuable access to senior-level executives who can share knowledge and experience, and provides mentors the opportunity to give back to women in the industry by guiding and empowering the future generation of leaders.
