Who We Are

Woman to Woman Mentoring

Our innovative, effective, free programs for women 18+ combine the power of one-on-one mentoring, community-building workshops, and opportunities to connect to help women identify and work toward their goals in education, career, and life.

We are a strong and supportive community of connectors, collaborators, supporters, guides, uniters, and bridge-builders. We care. We listen. We love. We believe in acceptance and understanding. We are real. We are confidence builders. We are learners.

We acknowledge and celebrate the diversity of our community. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to our mission, and we embrace both our common humanity and what makes each of us unique. We foster belonging for all and amplify women’s voices, affirm their value, and spotlight their strengths.
