2022 Women in Stone Mentorship Program

Women in Stone Mentorship Program

The Women in Stone Mentorship program was established in 2015 and has helped lead hundreds of 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

Learn more about the communication style assessment that we use during the pairing process. During last year’s program, author Dave Mitchell joined us for a webinar to teach us How to Be Resilient: The Power of Understanding People. You can access the recording below.

Check In Meetings

We will be holding brief one-on-one check-in meetings during the week of May 16th. 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. This will give you a chance to gauge your progress and collect tips for getting to the next point.

Guidance Emails
Emails will be sent every month with reminders to schedule a meeting with your pair. They will also include helpful worksheets to supplement your conversation each month. Because of spam filters, emails are not always reliable. You can access these guidance emails below. (Links posted after emails are distributed)
