  • All participants must be professional level WISE members in good standing at the time of application and through the duration of the program. Student members are not eligible.
  • Mentees: Women with a minimum of eight years professional experience who have not previously participated in WISE Within as a mentee. (WISE Within mentee alumn may not repeat the program.)
  • Mentors: Men and women with a minimum of 15 years professional experience.
  • To preserve the integrity and expectations of the program, applicants must meet all criteria to be considered.

Match and Selection

  • All matches are contingent upon the number of mentees and mentors within the applicant pool, and therefore application does not guarantee acceptance into the program.
  • Participation is based on the quality of the match.
  • When matching pairs, we strive to match the mentee with a mentor whose experience, professional and personal strengths will best meet her career needs.
  • While a mentee applicant may meet the criteria, there is the possibility that there is not a mentor applicant who can meet the mentee's career development needs. Those that are placed in the program are done so after careful evaluation where an appropriate match is determined.


  • You MUST be a professional level member to apply. Please make sure your membership is current.
  • Only online applications are accepted. 
  • All mentors and mentees complete an online application process, which takes about 30-40 minutes. The more thorough the responses, the better the quality of the match.
  • All applicants will be asked to submit their resumes.
  • A committee will review all applications and determine appropriate matches.

Applications for the 2021 cycle are now closed.
