Mentorship is one way to advance gender equity, and it can enhance a women’s career, but finding a mentor can be intimidating, the University of San Francisco President’s Advisory Committee on the Status of Women (PACSW) Women’s Co-Mentoring Program seeks to increase confidence, community, and capacity amongst women-identified employees at the University of San Francisco. The program aims to accomplish this through the creation of intentional, time-bound one-on-one relationships between University employees based on confidentiality and collegiality (PACSW Mission Statement). The ideal goal of the Co-Mentorship program is to benefit the co-mentors, as well as positively impact the whole University community through co-mentor training, meet-ups, monthly sessions, and group readings. Thus, ideally helping women establish relationships and make connections that can impact their career trajectories, lead to more female leaders, build confidence, and provide mentorship to those to come.
