Created by our members, for our members, the Financial Alliance for Women Mentoring Program capitalizes on the deep talent in our network, while acknowledging the staff and time limitations that constrain members from delivering in-field support to others in the Alliance.
As part of the Financial Alliance for Women’s ongoing effort to provide members access to critical knowledge and best practices surrounding the Women’s Market, we launched our Mentoring Program in January 2014. The program matches leaders from institutions with mature, successful initiatives targeting the Women’s Market to leaders from organizations seeking to implement or improve nascent programs. Mentees and mentors collaborate on a one-on-one basis to define objectives for success and discuss the strategies that will allow them to achieve those goals.
To participate, each pair commits to six conversations — usually 1 to 1.5 hours each — over a 6-month period. Support for mentoring pairs is provided in the form of an orientation and training session, as well as ongoing contact via email/Skype with a designated Mentoring Facilitator. For additional information or an application to become a mentor or mentee, contact Hilary Nichols.
