Our Mentorship and Engagement Initiative

In the summer of 2018, Public Media Women in Leadership (PMWL) will launch a three-year program to provide one-on-one mentorship partnerships for women in public media and develop facilitated peer-group communities around job verticals and leadership topics. Funded by the Wyncote Foundation, the Mentorship and Engagement Initiative has a range of components to provide mentoring, training and community for women in public media to both retain rising stars and prepare established leaders to attain the highest positions at stations and national organizations. Read the recent press release.

The elements of the mentorship and engagement program were developed based on survey input from the members of PMWL, from results garnered from the group's pilot mentor program in 2015-2016 as well as learnings from the many webinars and conference sessions the organization has hosted.
