Love What You Do STUDENT Application

The GHWCC Mentorship program aims to benefit all participants, whether they are mentors or mentees. The mentorship program will promote personal and professional growth and development.  The Chamber will work diligently to match applicants with Mentors that are closely aligned with the Mentee’s chosen field.   

For mentors, the benefits include enhancing leadership and management skills, contributing to the community, learning the viewpoints of other generations, and becoming a role model for the next generation of successful Houston businesswomen.

For mentees, the benefits include gaining access to corporate and community leaders, obtaining advice, and participating in professional development opportunities through mentor relationships and programming.

The program will begin in February 2023, with an in-person kickoff event, and will run through May 2023.  The initial event is mandatory for all student participants!  This will be the first opportunity for program participants and their corporate match to formally meet.

Student applications are due October 31, 2022.
