Women & Wisdom: A Mentoring Experience

Network of Real, Strong Women

Upcoming Events  |  Women & Wisdom Series


Participating in a mentoring program is an extremely effective way for people to develop new skills, achieve goals and identify areas for growth. A good mentoring relationship is mutually beneficial for both the mentor and the mentee and, especially for the mentee, can predict career success.
One of the core tenets of Alpha Chi Omega is wisdom, which is woven throughout our sisterhood and touches every corner of the world. Our collegiate women and alumnae have expressed a need for connection and opportunities to give back to Alpha Chi Omega in meaningful ways that are interactive, engaging, flexible and time-finite. Enter Women & Wisdom.

Women & Wisdom is an online networking experience designed to connect alumnae and collegians through professional interests and experiences. Alumnae and collegians in their junior or senior year are invited to participate. This interactive experience provides resources and tutorials to help guide mentors and mentees in developing impactful relationships, achieving goals and gaining new skills and competencies.

What Is Mentoring?

There are many ways to define mentoring and mentorship. For our purposes, we define the term “mentoring” as knowledge transfer. It’s an opportunity for the more experienced individual to transfer her knowledge or experience to another. 
Mentoring is different than professional coaching. Coaching is generally a nondirective activity; the focus is on asking questions to help the student solve their own problems and identify their next steps.


Options for Conducting Meetings

While most meetings will be held virtually (via Skype, Google Hangout or over the phone), mentors and mentees are encouraged to meet in person if geographically possible.

Core Competencies of Mentoring

  • Shares personal career successes and challenges

  • Has the ability to be supportive and authentic

  • Asks thoughtful questions to learn about mentee’s skill sets and professional goals 

  • Actively listens to identify areas of strength and opportunities for growth

  • Creates a safe and trusting space to deliver feedback in a respectful manner

  • Demonstrates appropriate and timely follow-through on commitments made to mentee


Benefits of Mentoring

Members who fully engage in the Women & Wisdom experience will benefit in substantial ways, whether she is serving in the capacity of a mentor or a mentee, or perhaps both.

The Alpha Chi Omega Fraternity and Foundation are hosting a number of events around the country featuring guest speakers and providing opportunities to connect with sisters in the area. Check back for additional details about upcoming events happening near you! 

Alpha Chi Omega is closely monitoring recent guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Regrettably, based on CDC guidance, Alpha Chi Omega has canceled the upcoming Women & Wisdom events in Portland and Minneapolis. We know this is disappointing. We hope that as time passes and we navigate this pandemic, we are able to reschedule these events in the future. Area alumnae in both Portland and Minneapolis are receiving direct communication regarding this update. Please direct any questions related to Women & Wisdom events to mentoring@alphachiomega.org
