Our Mentoring Program

Public Media Women in Leadership (PMWL) announces the launch of the PMWL Mentoring and Engagement Program, the first of its kind to cater to the varying needs of women in the industry through one-on-one mentoring partnerships. Funding for the program is provided by the Wyncote Foundation whose mission is “to support efforts that strengthen and enrich culture, community and the natural environment.” The Foundation has been active in supporting public media projects for many years ranging from system innovation to journalism and independent film.

The mentoring program will be offered in two tiers. Tier 1 mentees will include women within five years of attaining a C-level position and will be paired with men or women who are CEOs, COOs and GMs (current or retired). Tier 2 mentees will include women in the early years of their career and will be paired with men or women in mid-level management across various disciplines in public media.

Potential mentors and mentees can sign up by clicking the “Sign Up” button below. During this phase, applicants will be asked to fill out a profile form. Once accepted into the program, mentors and mentees will be able to start forming mentoring connections.
