W2W Leadership Initiative's February Updates
Updates on WILMA's Women to Watch Leadership Initiative
WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative has updates to share as we continue to work on the effort’s core mission of helping develop more women leaders in our area. Here’s what we’ve been up to with various W2W Leadership Initiative programs and what’s coming up next:
WILMA NETWORK: The WILMA Network, made up of women from the companies that support the Women to Watch initiative, serve as a resource for each other and represent a variety of area businesses, large and small. Members participate in small group networking events called 2nd Tuesdays (shown above at a recent one held at the Bridge Tender).
MENTORING: Applications are out for participants of the 2019-20 mentorship program in which we match up mentees with women and men leaders in the community to serve as mentors. Women who have been a part of the various Women to Watch Leadership Initiative programs during the past year are eligible to apply for a slot. If you are interested in serving as a mentor, feel free to contact us.
LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE: The 2019 class of WILMA’s Leadership Institute held its first meeting on January 24 for this year’s nine-month program. For a full list of the members in this year’s leadership development program, flip to the inside back cover of this month’s issue.
IN THE LOOP: Keep up to date with these and other Leadership Initiative programs as well as application announcements by going to WILMASToWatch.com or signing up for the WILMA Weekly newsletter on our website.
