WEST's Dynamic Pod Mentoring Program

Posted by Jaime Luna on Aug 18, 2021 1:25:06 PM

Program Mission: To help mentees achieve a personal or career goal by using small mentoring groups (pods) to obtain diverse perspectives that will provide an enriching experience for mentees and enable execution on goals through focused actions. 

WEST is now taking applications for mentors and mentees to join our fall mentoring program. 

2021 Fall Mentoring Blog

During the application process, mentees will rate their interest in these key topics (career progression, leadership, personal growth, work-life consideration) and that will be use for matching their core pod. Mentees will also have the opportunity to explore the other topics offered and/or mentors for their flex pod time each session.

The cost of participation for the program is $100, currently open to WEST members only. If you need a scholarship to cover the majority of the cost of a spot in this mentoring program and/or a membership, please email info@westorg.org to apply.
