What: Speed Mentoring Roundtable is a WISE Within national signature event hosted each January in celebration of National Mentoring Month. This interactive event brings attendees up close and personal with industry veterans and peers to discuss professional development. It is also an opportunity for select Featured Mentors from our WISE membership to pay it forward and provide leadership and career insights to younger industry professionals.
Attendees will be divided into small groups based on area of interest and years’ experience. Each group will be seated with a Featured Mentor. A few of the confirmed mentors are listed below. The groups will discuss suggested topics and share experiences for 15-20 minutes before the mentor rotates to a new table. Topics of discussion could include work/life balance, salary and promotion negotiations, networking and first impressions, and more!

This February, WISE Houston will launch the application process for our first, local WISE Within cycle. WISE Within is a six-month program that pairs entry and mid-level professional women to senior executives through facilitated group sessions, personal one-to-one mentoring and national online resources. The program is a natural extension of WISE’s mission and is designed to reflect the essence of WISE – to offer guidance and career support for the growth of professional women moving into leadership and executive positions in the business of sports and events. If you are interested in being a WISE Within Mentor or Mentee, please keep an eye out for email communication about the program launch.
