Chattanooga Women's Leadership Institute Accepting Applications For Mentoring Program

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

The Chattanooga Women's Leadership Institute is currently accepting applications for its 7th Annual Women Mentoring Women Program, which will begin on Aug. 22.

The Women Mentoring Women program consists of eight 2-hour lunchtime sessions designed to aid women in developing or sharpening their mentoring skills so they can go back into the community and mentor other women. The goal is to encourage women to utilize their talents and experience to help each other and to aid in the growth of women in positions of civic and business leadership within the community.  

Each session will be led by recognized local women who will present on topics such as understanding communication styles, team building, political savviness, closing the generational gap, branding and the use of power, authority and influence in the workplace.

To participate in this year's program, use the links below to obtain more information, and to download an application.
