Mentorship Programs

 

Our mentorship program provides mentoring and guidance for any female of all ages. The goal for our Mentors and Mentees to fully capitalize on the opportunity and ability to connect, communicate, and collaborate with more women and leaders in our community. Mentoring is described as a developmental relationship process between a mentor, who is an individual with experience, skills, and knowledge, and a mentee, who is less experienced or skilled in handling professional and life situations.

Business Mentoring  - A northwest Ohio multi-agency collaboration pairing seasoned mentors with different areas of expertise to businesses seeking guidance and inspiration.

Discovery Mentoring  - Open to any woman to meet with women mentors, in the Northwest Ohio or nationally, for guidance on any topic. One-to-one mentoring sessions with a chosen mentor, and speed mentoring sessions (Mentoring On The Moment - M.o.M.) allowing mentees to meet with several mentors to get a variety of ideas and meet with potential one-to-one mentors.

Young Women Mentoring  - A variety of group activities and one-to-one mentoring options with Women of Toledo staff and volunteers.
