New! ACW Introduces Mentoring Circles
Alliance of Channel Women is excited to introduce a new mentoring program called Mentoring Circles, which will bring small groups of mentees together with a facilitator for guided group mentoring.

One of the founding pillars of the Alliance of Channel Women is mentoring. The relationships built in this program can help define a career – for both the mentor and the mentee. Mentoring is both a “Get and Give” experience with the goal of providing a rich and rewarding experience for both participants.
Mentoring is a special partnership between two people based on a commitment to the mentoring process, common goal and expectations of the partnership. Including mutual trust and respect. The recommended hour long every other week meeting are designed to achieve a specific goal within three months.
What is the goal of a mentor?
The goal of the mentor is to grow the confidence of the mentee. If you are keeping the person in action, moving forward and their confidence is growing, you are on target.
What is the goal of the mentee?
The goal of the mentee is to openly share challenges, perform the agreed upon tasks, lead the topics of discussion and provide honest feedback to your mentor to maximize the value of the meetings.
