The Women in Hydropower Mentorship Program – which will match mentors with protégés from across the hydropower sector in the US – is accepting applications up to 1 August 2018.
The initiative is supported by the National Hydropower Association (NHA), Northwest Hydroelectric Association (NWHA), Midwest Hydro Users Group (MHUG) and PennWell’s HydroVision.
It aims to provide an opportunity for women to “connect, generate new friendships, and share experiences in a supportive environment that highlights the powerful contributions women make in the hydropower industry,” according to the organisers.
Following its launch in 2017, the initiative has successfully matched mentors and protégés from across the hydropower sector into 48 pairs.
Under the scheme, a mentor brings her life experience, a willingness to listen and give counsel, and provides network connections that support the protégé. The protégé brings her growth and development goals, opportunities, and challenges with a willingness to openly discuss them.
