Do you wish you had a team to talk through challenges and help you navigate to reach your objectives?
The Power Women Peer Group at Women of Denver is a resource for women seeking peer-to-peer mentorship and camaraderie. Groups meet once per month to strategize together and are committed to supporting each other in achieving their career or business objectives.
It’s like having a board of directors to walk the path with you.
HOW ARE MEMBERS ASSIGNED TO GROUPS?
Selected applicants will be assigned to groups of 5-8 members at a similar career level. Other factors will include availability, and matching skills you have with skills you need access to. Separate groups will be created for career women and entrepreneurs. Matches will be made using information submitted on this form and a 15 minute interview prior to placement. Groups will be created on a rolling basis starting April 1, 2020 as new applicants are submitted that match potential cohorts.
WHAT ARE THE MEETINGS LIKE?
Each group will meet monthly at the same time and location for 2 hours. Gatherings will be led by the peer-group facilitator. Members will be given time to talk about their personal objectives and receive feedback from the group. The goal of each meeting is to progress each person's individual goals by finding appropriate resources, committing to supporting each other, and setting priorities that will move the needle.
WHAT ARE THE EXPECTATIONS FOR MEMBERS?
Members are expected to be at every meeting (except in cases of emergencies), arrive on time and stay for the entire meeting.
Each member must commit to confidentiality and also be willing to have honest discussions, so that others can fully understand their needs and circumstances.
Members of the program will be committed to making real effort to help each woman succeed by making introductions, providing resources, and using her personal skills to advise and support other members of the group.
The commitment to each other doesn't end after the meeting. Members are committed to checking in with each other, and executing on any promises made during meetings such as providing introductions, or meeting separately to help with a task.
