On every last Thursday of the month at 3:30 pm EST, WFPG Members will get a chance to speak to an experienced mentor in international affairs in a small-group setting. These intimate conversations will allow Members to interact with women leaders across various sectors.

WFPG believes that mentorship is crucial for the next generation of women leaders to develop confidence and discover the tools they need to succeed. Mentor Minutes are a unique opportunity for students and young professionals to broaden their network among mentors and colleagues alike in a small-group setting. Members will gain insight on upcoming career decisions, learn more about tailoring applications to particular organizations and sectors, and hear directly from those in the field who have unparalleled experience to share.
