Women's Mentoring Network

The UToledo Women's Mentoring Network seeks to retain and support junior women faculty and staff across campus. 

Each participant is paired with a senior faculty or staff member who shares similar interests and has volunteered to serve as a mentor. This mentee/mentor match does not replace the department’s own mentoring programming but rather, it builds upon the work of departmental mentoring relationships. Senior faculty or staff members interested in serving as a mentor should fill out a brief online form to express their interests and willingness to serve.

In addition to pairing women mentees with mentors, there will be regular events sponsored by the Office of the Provost. Such annual events include: 

  • Mentoring Breakfast: attendees learn about the program, including the roles of mentor and mentee, receive information about mentoring resources and share tips about effective mentoring 
  • Coffee and Conversations: Various speakers will present each semester on issues of interest to women faculty. Time will also be offered to network with other women across campus
