NAPFA Women’s Initiative Mentoring Program

The goal of the Women's Initiative Mentoring Program is to provide women in NAPFA a structured opportunity to advance in their careers with the help of a mentor/mentee relationship.

The mentoring program will focus on pairing female advisors with female NAPFA members who may have had similar career-based experiences. The program will take place from May-October each year and will kick-off at the NAPFA Spring 2022 National conference. It is not required to attend the in-person conference.

Program interactions include:

  • A virtual kick-off to welcome mentors and mentees including personal introductions, icebreakers, a review of the program structure, and networking.
  • An in-person meetup at the NAPFA Spring 2022 National Conference
  • Monthly conversation topic suggestions and reminders to meet from the Women’s Initiative Mentoring Committee
  • A wrap-up meeting including feedback from participants on participation, satisfaction with the program, and recommendations for improvement.

The deadline to apply for this inaugural program is March 31, 2022.
