Mentorship Program

A component of the Women’s Leadership Network is mentorship. The network would like to encourage mentorship believing that relationships you develop will become channels for the passage of information, advice, challenges, opportunities and support. 

Please note the mentorship program is optional; it is NOT required to be part of the network.

  • SHARE  knowledge, information, stories of achievement experiences and wisdom
  • RESPECT each other’s time and develop a mutually beneficial relationship
  • SPONSOR each other by making known the strengths, skills and work to decision makers for the advancement of women in leadership roles
  • CHALLENGE by presenting new ideas, opportunities and challenges to each other
  • SUPPORT and encourage growth and achievement by providing an open and supportive environment
  • SET GOALS to discover your talents and interests and work toward achieving your goals together
  • MODEL positive behaviors that are consistent with strong women leaders

Participants of the mentorship program must complete the entire program period which is September 2017 – March 2018. Mentors and mentees must commit to spending at least one (1) hour per month together. We will begin accepting applications for the mentorship program Summer 2018. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Shaneil Ealy at sealy@uca.edu or (501) 450-5275.
