Women in Leadership Mentor Series
Connect and grow with other women in leadership by participating in the Women in Leadership Mentor Series. In these Zoom calls, you’ll hear directly from female leaders as they share effective practices and some of the lessons they have learned along the way. Learn about important topics such as: choosing a path of purpose, the value of mentorship, why networking is important, how you can lead during challenging times and more.
NEW! Women in Leadership Mentor Match
Study after study shows the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted working women far more than men. Women need professional support, especially those just starting their careers or changing professions. One valuable source of help is a strong, effective mentor. Mentors provide a great deal of guidance to women through the new and unprecedented challenges they confront.
This is why Argentum is excited to launch the Women in Leadership (WIL) Mentor Match Initiative. WIL’s Mentor Match Initiative is designed to provide this support for women in the senior living industry. When senior managers or executive directors—both women and men— are available on a one-to-one basis to regularly listen to younger women’s questions and concerns and to share their experiences and insights, women are more satisfied at work and more likely to have successful careers.
If you are interested in participating, complete the Mentee or Mentor match form in its entirety. Your answers will help us find your ideal match. While WIL’s Mentor Match Initiative lasts a finite time, we hope this program will foster many long-term relationships. Please be aware that a perfect match is not always possible when workings with such a diverse applicant pool, but the willingness and commitment from all participants will go a long way towards ensuring effective pairings and results.

Mentor Match Structure
The WIL Mentor Match Initiative offers monthly virtual sessions that explore issues and opportunities facing senior living professionals today, such as Work/Life Integration, Strategic Networking, Political Savvy, Executive Presence, and Communication.
Who is a WIL Mentee
For a mentoring relationship to be truly successful, Mentees must be committed to the process, make a sincere effort to accurately convey to their mentors their situations and aspirations, and carefully evaluate the advice they receive. Mentees must also maintain a positive mindset and recognize that their Mentors will be most engaged and helpful if they are enthusiastic, forthright, and engaged in the process.
Who is a WIL Mentor
Mentoring is a cooperative partnership that works best if there is candor and honesty on both sides. The best mentors are good listeners, good questioners, and good strategic thinkers. Mentors should be cheerleaders for their Mentees—providing encouragement, reassurance, and positive suggestions. To ensure that Mentees get the most out of the WIL Mentor Match Initiative, we encourage all qualified women in the senior living space to apply to be a Mentor. That way, WIL can ensure an excellent networking opportunity for both Mentees and Mentors.
