Each year, Minnesota Women in Psychology offers the opportunity for mentorship. We offer a Mentoring Meet and Greet event to help potential mentees be matched with a mentor that fits her interests and can speak to her desired growth areas. This event has been an effective way to create beneficial mentoring relationships.
Mentorship is generally a one year commitment, but is flexible to be individualized based on mentor and mentee’s preferences. We encourage pairs to discuss this commitment based on their own terms, as well as any conflicts or issues related to termination or extension of the relationship. The format of the mentorship is determined by each pair according to their needs. Most mentoring pairs meet around once per month and determine the location based on their individual needs. We encourage pairs to be intentional and creative as their relationship evolves.
Consider Being A Mentor
Our current community of mentors consistently give feedback that they enjoy their relationship with their mentee and find it to be mutually beneficial. We currently have a higher number of mentees looking to be matched, so please consider being a mentor. Mentorship is a valuable way to pass on your experience and knowledge and network in your community.
The MWP Mentoring Meet and Greet Match Up took place on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 this year. If you missed the meeting and are interested in the Mentorship Program, please contact: [email protected]
