WEST Dynamic Pod Mentoring
Now accepting applications for mentors and mentees
WEST will launch a non-traditional, dynamic pod mentoring program next month. The mission of the program is to help mentees achieve a personal or career goal by using novel small mentoring groups (pods) to obtain diverse perspectives that will provide an enriching experience for mentees and enable execution on goals through focused actions. The program will consist of six 1.5-2-hour meetings. Mentors and mentees will participate in six meetings on 2/23 (training), 3/2, 3/23, 4/13, 5/4 and 5/25. The total time commitment is 1 training, plus 5 meetings every three weeks, starting at 6:00 pm and ending around 7:45 pm. In each session, mentees will explore up to 2 topics, with feedback from 1 mentor and up to 3 mentees (i.e., a pod) per topic, expand their network with 30 minutes of structured networking, and discuss a specific challenge/goal and come out with concrete and actionable feedback. Learn more and register at
