WGR Mentor Program Postponed until Fall 2020

Tuesday, April 21, 2020  

Due to the public health concerns of COVID-19 and the nature of a successful mentor program being bolstered by face-to-face conversation and rapport-building, WGR's Personal & Professional Development Committee has decided to move our members-only mentor program to the fall of 2020. We want to ensure that our mentors and mentees are able to meet, spend time together, and craft a meaningful relationship that will extend throughout the program and hopefully for years to come. As you make plans for the fall, please consider signing up to be a mentor for this year's program.

We understand that the situation with COVID-19 is constantly evolving and new information about the timing of going back to work and out in public is slowly being developed. The Personal & Professional Development Committee, Mentorship Program Coordinators, and WGR Leadership will continue to discuss the best path forward for the program and will keep you apprised of the situation as we get closer to the fall.

In the meantime, we hope that all members are able to connect and support one another through WGR’s online Community(link).  Likewise, we encourage any previous mentor program participants to reach out and engage with their mentor/mentee partners from prior years' programs. 

We look forward to getting together in person soon!
