Applications open for women in hydropower mentoring scheme

29 June 2020

A mentoring scheme for women in hydropower is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 year.

Launched in 2017, the Women in Hydropower Mentorship Program provides an opportunity for women to connect, generate new friendships and networks, and share experiences in a supportive environment. 

“The feedback about women’s experiences in this mentorship program has been overwhelmingly positive and illustrates how critical women to women mentorship is,” said Nora Rosemore from Minnesota Power, who serves as the Chair of the Women in Hydropower Mentorship Program Steering Committee.  

A volunteer steering committee, passionate about mentorship and supporting women in the hydro industry, match the applicants into traditional or reciprocal mentorship pairs. Each mentorship pair is unique and adapts to a relationship style and meeting format that works best for them, meeting once a month for eight months, from October to May.

Applications close on 3rd August 2020 and pairings will be announced in September.

If you would like to apply, please complete the application form and email it to  

The program is supported by the International Hydropower Association (IHA), WaterPower Canada, the U.S. National Hydropower Association (NHA), Northwest Hydroelectric Association (NWHA), Midwest Hydro Users Group (MHUG), and HydroVision International.
