Learn - Share - Grow

Are you looking for guidance from a seasoned parking professional? Do you have wisdom to share with someone building their career in parking?

Participation in the WIP Mentoring Program is an opportunity to share insight, learn from others, and broaden your career in a unique and meaningful way. Since its inception 6 years ago, hundreds of members have taken part in WIP mentoring program as either a mentor of mentor candidate. Through it they’ve learned more about themselves, the parking industry, the business environment, and how to succeed and lead. The program is a great learning environment for mentor candidates and a rewarding teaching tool for mentors. 

What To Expect: The mentoring program runs for 1 year beginning mid-August. It consists of regular (at least once per month) meetings between mentors and their candidates.  The mentor and mentoring candidate pairs will meet (virtually or in person) to discuss the mentoring candidate’s goals as described in her/his completed mentoring application. 

The WIP Mentoring Committee will conduct quarterly check-ins to ensure that the experience for all program participants is aligned with their expectations.

The WIP Mentoring Program is open to WIP members only.
