About the Program:
The Women in Cleantech & Sustainability Mentorship Program is a 3-month, cohort-based program which supports women in advancing their careers in the cleantech and sustainability sectors.
- Regular one-on-one meetings with a mentor
- 3 group events to share insights and network
- Small cohort of industry professionals
- WCS membership for mentees is still required, but at the virtual level (vs. chapter level) so that we accommodate all global members of our community
WHO SHOULD BE A MENTEE?
Women pursuing a career in cleantech or sustainability, whether just starting, transitioning, or advancing your career. Mentees should have less than five years of work experience or be in career transition. WCS Virtual or Chapter Membership (SF or LA) is required to participate in the program.
WHO SHOULD BE A MENTOR?
Seasoned professionals of any gender with at at least six years experience in the clean economy, who wish to help advance a new generation of women in the field. Mentees generally will have less than 5 years of work experience or are in a career transition.
The program kicks off with an orientation call on Thursday January 11th, 2024. The program runs for three months (January – March 2024) and includes three virtual cohort events.
