WISE Mentoring Program

I am so glad you are interested in our Women in Safety Excellence Mentor Program.

First of all, the Women in Safety Excellence have a Community page dedicated to the events and programs available. It is a private group and requires only that you are a member of WISE to access it. Wise Community on ASSP’s Community Page 


There are other public ways to reach wise on social media as well:

WISE LinkedIn Group 

WISE Faceboook Group 

WISE Twitter 

Next, We love our mentors and mentees and our next match will be in February 2024!  So Perfect timing.

If you are interested, please complete the application on the ASSP web site or try the link below. https://www.assp.org/membership/communities/common-interest-groups/women-in-safety-excellence/mentoring

At Bay Area Safety Symposium 2024, we will be presenting a mentee round table that you will not want to miss!
