WIN/WIN Peer Mentorship Program

A monthly meetup for businesswomen and entrepreneurs with the purpose of peer to peer mentoring (helping each member grow their business, regardless of niche). This group is focused on learning and sharing with the goal of problem solving. We value diversity and are eager to hear from different social and cultural groups and viewpoints. Accountability groups help members keep certain goals, business related or entrepreneurial growth focused.

A key and foundational element of this group will be the rich information sharing, participants should understand this in advance of signing up as they will need to feel comfortable sharing information with other businesses. Each participant will sign a confidentiality agreement to ensure the information shared is kept within the members of the WIN/WIN group.

At each (monthly) meeting the membership will break off into smaller groups of 5-7 to facilitate smaller group discussions via the meeting platform.  Meeting time will be determined by a poll.

Member Commitment:

  • Members are expected to make a 6-month commitment. The WIN/WIN Peer Mentoring Group will run in 2023, aiming to begin in September. There will be opportunities for optional social gatherings .
  • Members are expected to arrive on time to all meetings. If you are not able to make it, please email in advance.
  • Members who miss a meeting will donate $25 to the WIN Bursary Fund. Illnesses will be excused.
  • Members are expected to follow the ground rules of respect for others in the group, time restrictions and the expectation of confidentiality

Meeting Times & Structure:

  • Meeting times are TBD based on the poll of applicants’ availability
  • At each meeting each member will have an allocated time to
    • share two successes or “things that have worked” that they have experienced in that month in their business
    • the biggest challenge they are currently facing in their business.
    • receive feedback and mentoring input from the group regarding the identified challenge.
  • Each month each member will commit to one priority action item or solution that they will try to implement before the next meeting.
