2020 Women in Stone Mentorship Program

Women in Stone Mentorship Program

The Women in Stone Mentorship program was established in 2015 and has helped lead more than 200 women through a unique learning experience designed to help build confidence and advance their careers. Participants are paired based on their experience and goals, which are collected through our registration form. They meet for one hour per month throughout the six months program. No travel is required.  

There are 3 ways to participate in the program:

  • Mentor
  • Mentee
  • Peer-to-Peer

You will prioritize 4 categories to focus on during the program:

  • Leadership & Career Advancement
  • Sales, Marketing, and Communications
  • Stone Industry Knowledge
  • Technical Knowledge

Registration

2020 registration will be done through an online form, which opens Monday, January 6, 2020 and closes Friday, February 7, 2020.

Mentees and Peer-Matches will be required to submit a Career Development Goals worksheet completed in conjunction with their manager.

Kick Start Webinars
Our Kick Start webinars are designed to explain the details of the program and offer tips to participants to make the most out of the opportunity.


Your Match
You will receive an email with information about your mentor/mentee pair by March 1, 2020. If you have immediate concerns about the match, you can request a change. All pairs will be finalized by Friday, April 10th.

Mid-Point Webinar
We will be holding 2 mid-point webinars in May. These are not required, but may be helpful for some participants. This can be a crucial point for some mentorship relationships—after the “getting to know you” phase and leading into where the real progress happens with individual goals. Several people participating in the program will share their experiences. This will give you a chance to gauge your progress and collect tips for getting to the next point.

To RSVP, email Sarah Gregg.
