The Mentoring Program partners professional women, between the ages of 22 and 35, with experienced professional women who espouse and exemplify the ideals of the Institute

Description of the Program

The Murray Hill Institute-TX Mentoring Program partners professional women in the first years of their career with experienced professional women who espouse and exemplify the mission of the Institute.  The MHI-TX Mentoring Program aims at helping women integrate ethical standards into their personal and professional lives while affirming them in the unique role they play in promoting a more just and harmonious workplace.

Mentoring can be formal and one-on-one, or informal and in group.  The program supplements any mentoring that takes place in the workplace.

  • Formal and one-on-one mentoring:  Mentees are matched with a mentor.  Both parties agree on a time, place and frequency of meetings.  The mentoring relationship is intended to help with short-term issues and normally does not continue beyond a year.

  • Informal and in group mentoring:  Evenings of Conversation for young professional women are scheduled regularly.  In a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, experienced professionals share their knowledge and experience about topics relevant to women in the workplace.  These Evenings provide ample networking opportunities.
