The Women Mentoring Women program is offered annually by the Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute and is designed for women who are interested in, or who by virtue of their position in an organization share a passion for, advancing other women. During the program, participants will develop their mentoring skills, enabling them to mentor and develop other women in the community or in their place of business.
The Women Mentoring Women program explores issues facing business owners and members of organizations, strengthens individual talents and skills needed to work more effectively and efficiently, and provides participants with the tools needed to develop co-workers, protégées and other business owners. Additionally, the program provides opportunities for networking, as participants meet regularly and hear from a variety of the most prominent women leaders in Chattanooga today.
