Mentor-Protégé is a marquee program of WIT. Linking protégés with experienced professionals, Mentor Protégé takes participants through a structured program that helps them expand their exposure to and knowledge of what it takes to meet their goals.


Vision

The WIT Mentor-Protégé program is the 21st Century’s place for women in the technology industry who want dynamic personal growth and a platform for professional success. Career women aspire to be enriched through mentoring and networking in this unparalleled program in the Washington, DC area.

Mission

The WIT Mentor-Protégé Program's mission is to encourage dynamic personal and career growth for women in technology through a series of guided quality discussions in a community with other professional women.

Structure

Each Mentor-Protégé Program offers a five-part series and is conducted by a professional facilitator. Each monthly session explores issues and opportunities facing women professionals today, such as Work/Life Integration, Strategic Networking, Political Savvy and Executive Presence, and Communication. The series is designed for:

  • Young professionals 5 years into career
  • Professional women in transition, and
  • Women re-entering the workforce.

The program is limited to 25 women and qualified candidates are accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis. Protégés are matched with 4 different mentors during each 5-month program. To ensure that protégés get the most out of the Mentoring Program, we request that protégés commit to all 5 sessions.

While most of our Mentors continue to work with us, we encourage new Mentors to apply. In this way we have a large group of talent available for Mentor-Protégé matching.

Protégés and new Mentors complete applications to participate in the program 2 to 3 months prior to the program start date. The program provides an excellent networking opportunity for career path (protégé) and senior (mentor) women.
