WOMEN2WOMEN (W2W) Mentoring is a program of Dress for Success Columbus, and an expression of our overall commitment to help women build a network of support and provide career development tools.  W2W is aimed at benefiting both mentor and mentee by fostering a safe and supportive environment where participants can build and reflect upon their professional choices as they develop a rewarding career.

Dress for Success Columbus understands that a woman’s career development is an ongoing process.  Mentoring addresses the need for additional support during this time by connecting employed women with experienced professionals who provide one-on-one guidance to help women shape, pursue, and attain a strong network to achieve their career goals.

Our signature Women2Women (W2W) Mentoring Program is a 6-month commitment. The 2024 mentoring program runs from May through November. Mentors and Mentees commit a minimum of 2-4 hours per month to rapport building, networking, and progress evaluation.

Applications for Women2Women Mentoring are being accepted now through April 19, 2024.

  • Pre-program training
