2020-2021 WEC Mentor Connect Cohort

WEC’s Mentorship Program called “Mentor Connect” is a six-month program to facilitate mentors and mentees relationships. WEC will host monthly Zoom calls scheduled each third Thursday of the month, beginning October 2020. These calls are designed to provide a convenient opportunity for mentors and mentees to easily meet. Following a brief welcome, mentors and mentees will be placed in breakout rooms for the balance of the call. Feel free to make these Third Thursday calls your routine time/place to convene with each other; otherwise, we give you the latitude to determine the best schedule, format and frequency for you and your mentor/mentee.

You will receive a meeting invite for the recurring monthly Zoom meetings.
