ABOUT THE MENTORSHIP MATTERS PROGRAM
Beth Paretta, WIMNA Mentorship Committee Chair, introduces the WIMNA Mentorship Matters Program:
All talk and no action? Sometimes the right kind of talk IS action. Introducing the WIMNA Mentorship Matters Program.
WIMNA prides itself on the belief that sharing knowledge is a key resource for career growth. Our unique, ongoing, Mentorship Matters Program is an important resource for Motorsport professionals and those considering careers in Motorsport.
With a monthly fireside chat-style virtual discussion, you can either listen live with the opportunity to interact and ask questions or watch select sessions on-demand from our WIMNA Library.
Join us for #WIMNAWednesdays when we will feature a rotating roster of Mentors and Moderators who will discuss the challenges, pitfalls, and successes they have had in their respective motorsports roles and disciplines.
The calendar of Mentors and Moderators will be announced soon and registration will be open two weeks before each event.
Viewers will have the opportunity to #AskAMentor and submit questions in advance of the session, and as a special feature, we will also provide the opportunity to ask questions anonymously. Discussions will be frank, open, and honest, and we encourage people to tune in to the discussions in their field of interest and expertise as well as any other session. We believe a broad perspective and understanding of all roles is a critical ingredient to successful teams.
Check back for the roster of Mentors and Moderators, tune in on #WIMNAWednesdays, and watch for how you can #AskAMentor and possibly #BeAMentor!
