Career Mentoring for Women

One-on-one career development

Founded in 1998, this innovative six-month career development program offers women with defined career objectives the unique opportunity to be paired with a mentor who has an established career in the participant’s chosen field. Each mentee works closely with her mentor and the WoMentoring staff to reach individually designed career goals. This partnership enables mentees to focus on personal and professional growth, increase their networks and receive encouragement and coaching. Successful mentees are encouraged to return to the program as mentors.

Sonie’s story

Sonie is a JVS HealthWorks graduate who joined WoMentoring after working in a skilled nursing facility. She was ready to move forward in her career and needed an experienced mentor to help her plan and chart her path. Paired with Anne, an experienced RN at Cedars Sinai, Sonie landed a job at an acute care hospital and joined the corps of volunteers at Cedars as the next step on her career path.
