Invest in your career! Mentor circles are a powerful career advancement tool. Face challenges, obstacles, and celebrate new opportunities taking advantage of the advice, counsel, and mentorship from women in your field who are vested in your success. WIB-SoCal Mentoring Circles are a part of the Mentorship, Advisors, Peers, and Sponsorship (MAPS) portfolio of programs. Mentees complete a personal plan identifying their goals at the start of the program that is worked and reviewed consistently with their mentor.


Matches between mentees and mentors will be made creating circles built around common career interests with no more than five people in each circle (two mentors and three mentees). A launch event in January 2020 will introduce the mentors/mentees and train participants on best practices to maximize success. Carefully designed to respect busy schedules, participants commit three hours per month, over a six-month timeline, in a combination of face-to-face meetings and conference calls. Apply to join a mentor circle and in your application share your interests, personal career goals, and prioritize professional topics that interest you. 


This is an exciting new addition for the Southern California chapter and we encourage you to join a circle today. You do not have to be a WIB member when you apply, but membership is required to participate at the start of the program. You must be willing to commit to the process and be motivated to give and receive professional support.



RSVP required and completion of the MAPS application in advance of the first meeting date. Application deadline November 30, 2019.
