The inaugural Woman Rise program takes place January 2022 – December 2022.
Throughout the year, Woman Rise will provide monthly opportunities for mentors and mentees to establish a long-lasting relationship. Check-ins, events and goals will facilitate progress and organic growth outside of the formal program.
This program is for Arkansas residents only. Those selected will be notified in October 2021. Once selected, mentors will be invited to a Meet & Greet with mentees, as well as a two-hour training in November. The program will begin on January 5, 2022.
Mentors should meet with their mentee at least one hour a month, whether in-person or virtually. Additionally, this is a yearly program with the introduction of new mentees and mentors every year.
