Mentoring

WTS-Puget Sound Chapter 2018/2019 Mentoring Program

If you’re interested in being a mentor or protégé, please sign-up!

Need help networking or advancing within your chosen career path?

Want tips for achieving your desired work/life balance?

Have experience and knowledge to share with younger professionals looking to grow?

WTS (Women’s Transportation Seminar) is committed to developing excellence in the transportation industry. To provide support for those who work, or are interested in working, in the transportation industry WTS Puget Sound is offering a free Mentoring Program (open to both men and women).  This year’s program runs from November 2018 to June 2019.

WHAT: Mentoring is a partnership between a “mentor” and a “protégé” designed to promote an interchange of knowledge, skills, experiences, and expertise to support personal and professional growth and development.  A good mentoring program benefits both the mentor and the protégé.

Protégés: If you are looking to take your career to the next level, this is the opportunity for you.

Mentors: No matter what your interests and experiences are, you have knowledge and experience to share from being a working professional. We are seeking:

  • Senior professionals to mentor junior professionals

  • Junior professionals to mentor entry level professionals and college students.

HOW: Submit an online application by the deadline, Monday October 15th.

You will be matched up with a mentor/protégé and invited to a Kickoff Meeting on Thursday Nov 8, 2018. Mentors and protégés will be responsible for meeting at least once a month on their own during the program – this can be face to face or on the phone.  The program also includes group meetings at a Mid-Year event (the end of January) and an End-of-Year event (Beginning of June).  

APPLY: Clicking on the following links for Protégés or Mentors. Applications open September 11, 2018

Expectations:  Please only apply if you are willing to commit to the 8-month program, out of respect to our mentors’ time.  We ask that you make a special effort to attend each of the three planned events.  Those that successfully “graduate” from the program will receive special recognition on the WTS Mentoring webpage. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
