WCM Mentorship Program Presents: Career Development PlanningWednesday, July 24th 2019
5:30 PM to 7:45 PM
WCM Professional Mentorship
WCM’s Professional Mentorship Program presents Career Development Planning.
This program pairs female protégées with mentors from outside of their firm for a 12-month period. With their mentor’s support and guidance, protégées establish career goals, discuss strategies to overcome challenges, benefit from the mentor’s knowledge and experience and extend their network outside of their own firm. For mentors, the program is equally rewarding as it is an opportunity to coach, motivate, empower and give back to the community by helping shape future female leaders.
In addition to keynote speaker events like this one, the Menorship Program includes formal skill-build sessions with executive coaches to help mentors and protégées optimize the relationship and bring new skills back to their organizations.
Since its inception, this program has provided more than 750 female capital market professionals with access to formal mentor relationships.
