A Note from Erin,

 As I reflect on this past year, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for all of you participating in Women Who Succeed. There are many demands in your busy lives, but you generously give your time, talents, and resources month after month. Helping young women to pursue post-secondary education, building their leadership skills, and growing their confidence is a passion of mine, and it warms my heart to know there are so many other women out there that feel the same way I do. I love the fact that we lift one another and have built friendships and professional networks all centered around the vision of supporting the next generation of women! 

 As noted last month, we will take applications for the new membership year from January 10 through February 28, 2023.  I hope you are planning on renewing your membership! Your current membership continues through May. This timeframe is deliberate as we need to know who wants to be a mentor beginning in May. We carefully hand-match every mentee with each woman who chooses to be a mentor, which is quite a lift. The selection of mentees begins at about that time and involves the young women completing applications, having interviews, submitting bios, etc. Then the matching begins! We want everyone set in place for our first required in-person event to be held on May 2023 at our Women Who Succeed conference. Eventbrite links will be sent out in calendar invites for your rsvp.  Watch for an email from Women Who Succeed around the first of January with an invitation to join us again in 2023.

Mentee Highlight: Ellery Gresham

Ellery is a data science student at the University of Utah. She was recently hired as the new Women Who Succeed intern to help with events and mentee recruitment! We are so excited to have her as part of our team officially, so check out the video above to get to know Ellery. 

2023-2024 Mentee Cohort Registration

We are about to start recruiting for next school year’s mentee cohort! Priority registration opens for current mentees from December 15th to January 1st. If they apply to join next year’s cohort within that time, they will be automatically accepted, bypassing the interview process! Mentees may apply for priority registration below. 

Please note that mentees must apply every year to rejoin the program, so please encourage your mentees to sign up again!

General Mentee registration opens to the public from January 1st- April 1st. We’d appreciate it if you could support us by sharing mentee application information with young women you know personally and within your personal and professional networks.
