WISE Seattle Wraps Up Its Annual Mentorship Program: 2022 WISE Within


Seattle, WA — After 4 months of 1-1 and group meetings, we've officially wrapped the 3rd edition of WISE Seattle's Mentorship Program: WISE Within. We kicked off in late June with five mentoring pairs (see below), and culminated the program with a full-day retreat on Saturday, October 8th, 2022. 

Throughout the 4-month long program, participants had the opportunity to get together in person for a few summer events; including a Seattle Sounders match, a hike and talk evening at Discovery Park in Seattle, an intimate Q&A session to kick off the program, and a full day of activities at Village Wines in Woodinville, WA to wrap up the curriculum.  

During the retreat at Village Wines, the group got to talk, laugh, reflect, exchange successes and ideas, and think on what they wanted to take away from the experience as they step into the future. We can confidently say we achieved our goal of creating a safe space for these women to forge meaningful relationships that'll last beyond the duration of the program. It was a great ride, and we can't wait to do it again next year!
