Find a Mentor
The advice and guidance of a mentor can be a key success factor in your career. Want a mentor? Be proactive and find one through WoWE’s mentoring program.
Career success requires more than education and willingness to work. Experts say that many successful people have benefited from having a mentor, a senior guide to the field, who can answer questions, point out opportunities, and smooth the way for a newcomer. Some mentoring relationships arise spontaneously, but not everyone is that lucky. How do you find a mentor if you don't already have one?
Launched in 2008, the WoWE mentoring program is the first program geared specifically for women working in or entering the wind energy field. It exists to connect mentors with people who need them. Because the program is Web-based, mentor and "mentee" can get together regardless of location. And because our fast-moving field keeps us all busy, the program is designed to make maximum use of time.
