Mentoring Mondays


Permanent link for Mentoring Mondays - June 7, 2021 on June 7, 2021

On June 1, 2020, the MI-ACE Women’s Network launched the “Advancing Women Engagement Plan” to address the need to stay engaged and connected during the pandemic when face-to-face activities were suspended. The goal of that plan was to build a calendar of “virtual” events and engagement opportunities for members from June through December. As we enter June 2021, we will celebrate one year operating under that plan and some really amazing things have happened.

Part of that plan was the launch of the “Mentoring Mondays” website posts, and we have shared many wonderful leadership and career building tips and strategies over this past year. As we close the month of May, our “recognition month,” we would like to give thanks to the Network’s Executive Board for their bold and innovative leadership during a time of uncertainty.

“To dream anything that you want to dream.

That is the beauty of the humankind.

To do anything that you want to do.

That is the strength of the human will. To Trust yourself to test your limits – that is the courage to succeed!”
