Mentoring, Coaching, and Sponsoring

Through AWIS membership, you can build strong mentoring relationships which are proven to increase career success at all levels. Mentoring is a great opportunity to share your experiences, broaden your professional network, and develop a career plan.

Both mentors and mentees learn from each other and gain multiple new perspectives on their own experiences. AWIS resources provide knowledge and advice on topics ranging from career paths, leadership, and communications to addressing harassment in the workplace and work-life integration.

We invite you to explore these valuable benefits of your AWIS membership.
