Women Investing in and Guiding Students (WINGS) Eight-month college-to-career mentoring program
Co-sponsored by the Institute for Women's Leadership and the Center for Women and Work, WINGS is a college-to-career mentoring program designed to link selected undergradate Rutgers female students with successful professional women as mentors.
WINGS program takes place over one academic year, and each corporate sponsor holds 5 to 7 events, depending on the company. In addition, mentors and mentees set up times for one-on-one sessions at their convenience. Many mentor-mentee relationships last beyond the program year.
The goals of the WINGS program are to:
Build a network of valuable professional connections
Gain an understanding about workplace culture, organizational structure and work/life balance issues
Have the opportunity to explore a field of interest through exposure to a well-established professional woman in that field
