Tap into the WISE National Knowledge Base

WISE members look to trusted resources to help unlock the knowledge needed to respond to challenges and advance their careers. WISE Within provides access to the experience of our successful senior-level members and leverages the power of mentorship to help participants develop the potential within. WISE Within mentors are industry leaders, decision makers and influencers. They represent key sports and events industry organizations and have included WISE Women of the Year honorees.

Make Connections, Build Relationships

WISE Within gives mentoring pairs the platform to engage in a confidential and reciprocal professional one-to-one relationship. Our group sessions and online network offer easy access for connecting with peers and building strong relationships beyond the mentoring partner. After successfully completing the program, an alumni group extends the network to include participants from previous years.

Experience the Power of Mentorship

The mentoring relationship benefits both the mentee and mentor. WISE Within gives dedicated mid-level professional women valuable access to senior-level executives who can share knowledge and experience, and provides mentors the opportunity to give back to women in the industry by guiding and empowering the future generation of leaders.
