Who Should Attend THRIVE Mentoring Events…

 FOR POTENTIAL MENTORS:

(For Mentees see below…)

Perhaps you are in a new season of life and want to pass on your life stories and wisdom.
If you’ve been searching for inspiration to do something to help younger business women…

This is your SIGN!

Stop, look and listen up!

If mentoring sounds appealing, then let THRIVE Mentoring guide you through the steps to sustainably give back through mentoring with new generations of women.

If you are searching for greater purpose and want to make a difference, a positive impact, and help others in today’s world…
This community program for women was designed to encourage and equip you along the mentoring journey.

THRIVE Mentoring will teach you how to pass the torch and connect you with younger women to build a purposeful mentoring relationship.

 

FOR POTENTIAL MENTEES:

When you have an important decision to make – whether or not to accept an internship, how a study abroad can help your future, how to deal with a challenge in the student organization you’re an officer in – who do you turn to?

Perhaps you have been in your career for some time, but you are at a crossroads and need someone to discuss options, ideas and solutions. Maybe you quit your job, started consulting – or your own business – and want advice from other women who have carved their own way.

Having a relationship with a trusted mentor can guide you through making tough decisions and help you grow by learning what’s most important to you.

THRIVE Mentees are professional women 18+ years old who are passionate about pursuing growth across every aspect of their lives.  They’re self-motivated, action-oriented, and are committed to achieving and living into their full potential.

What is THRIVE Women’s Business Mentoring?

Thrive Women's Business Mentoring San Luis Obispo CAIn collaboration with Cal Poly’s Women In Business (WIB) and Communication Studies Clubs, Polly Mertens Coaching are hosting informal events to build a mentoring network…a community of women committed to sharing, supporting and succeeding together. The mentoring programs and events are designed to accelerate women’s full potential, personally and professionally. Women from all over San Luis Obispo County 18+ are welcome, no experience necessary.

Our Purpose

We are on a mission to intentionally develop a purposeful and healthy mentoring movement made up of women who share, support and succeed right here on the Central Coast.

Our Goals

THRIVE Women’s Business Mentoring has two primary goals:

  1. To connect professional women all across San Luis Obispo County with the resources, mentors and opportunities they need to create thriving businesses and thriving lives.
  2. To create a culture and mindset among the mentors and mentees of self-leadership, resilience, courage, collaboration, confidence and inspiration so that they make a positive impact on the world around them.

Our Programs and Events

THRIVE Mentoring programs are for women interested in holding a position of leadership in their career, passion project or as an entrepreneur who are seeking targeted, one-on-one advice to help build successful businesses or careers. We also offer experienced professional women and business owners meaningful volunteer opportunities to give back.

Join us as we work to create a brighter future for women, because when women prosper, communities thrive!

Together We THRIVE

THRIVE Women’s Business Mentoring brings exceptional women together to share ideas, get inspiration and learn from one another. At each event, experienced entrepreneurial women or executive leaders connect with mentees for support, knowledge exchange and problem-solving.


Our Mentors

THRIVE Mentors are women who appreciate the value mentorship can be as an important part of a successful career…and life. They are senior executives, thought leaders and entrepreneurs from both the public and private sector. Our mentors have a range of skills from a variety of professional backgrounds, including the arts, government, professional services, science, media, academia, technology and much more.

 

 Walk and Talk Events
THRIVE Mentor Walks bring exceptional women together to walk (or hike) and talk in a casual, comfortable setting. At each event, experienced business women or executive leaders walk with mentees for an hour of support, knowledge exchange and problem-solving. These events are held once a month throughout SLO County.


Quarterly Trainings and Networking Events

THRIVE Mentoring is about connecting, sharing and supporting one another.  In our trainings and live personal networking events, we are enhancing the skills of both mentors and mentees while helping foster new relationships that make an impact on both women’s lives.

 

THRIVE Mentor Walk and Talk events are free with the trainings and larger live events having admission fees (students attend for free with valid current ID).
