Supporting women's flourishing, on campus and beyond
William & Mary Women’s Mentoring program, or WM2, connects student protégés with faculty, staff and graduate student mentors to support the flourishing of women on campus and beyond.
WM2 is a grass-roots initiative which supports mentoring relationships between women at William & Mary. Potential mentors and protégés gather at a kick-off matching event in mid-September. Our matching committee will then propose a protégé for each mentor; that suggestion can be accepted or declined by the mentor. The scope of the mentoring relationship will be mutually determined by those in each pair, with support offered by our committee. We suggest meeting at least one hour per month. Twice per semester, WM2 also offers optional enrichment opportunities for all mentor-protégé pairs to come together, learn, and socialize. Note that graduate students may be either mentors or protégés; please let us know which role you'd like when you contact us.
The program is facilitated by a small but fierce group of women leaders on campus.
How Can I Get Involved?
You may sign up to participate in the program in the fall each year. Interest forms will be activated on this website when the sign-up period opens. All protégés must attend the matching event, known as an Evening of Women’s Mentoring. Mentors are recruited in the fall, and mentor-protégé pairs are matched based on information about each participant’s interests and availability. Note that graduate students may be either mentors or protégés; please let us know which role you'd like when you contact us.
