Women in Tech SEO

Mentorship Program

What is the WTSMentorship program?

WTSMentorship is a Women in Tech SEO initiative. It's a mentorship program for women in the SEO field with the goal of helping both mentors and mentees feel empowered and share that empowerment with one another.

This program is all about

Women Mentoring Women
. This is the value that this community has been built on from the very beginning.

This is a mentorship program, not a training course, it involves mentors and mentees within the SEO industry, but the focus of the mentorship program is on soft skills such as Career Development, Leadership, Strategy and more.

Over the last 3 years, we have matched over 400 mentors x mentees and the feedback that keeps coming through is terrific. We learn a lot from this feedback and apply the learnings to our future cohorts.

Meet the team

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of our WTSPartners, we're able to cover our trainer's fee. Our program trainer, Kathryn Monkcom, is a digital marketer and careers coach, who will be providing training sessions to both our mentors and mentees during the program onboarding phase. She will then conduct weekly check-ins and provide guidance and advice throughout the program to our mentors and mentees.

Program structure

The program runs for 2 months with a dedicated onboarding and training week prior to the first week. We have a maximum of 50 mentors x mentees. As with all our initiatives, the program is only open to women. We recommend between 2 to 4 hours monthly requirement to connect with your mentor/mentee.

There will be a private Slack channel that includes separate areas for mentors & mentees. We will provide a program monthly structure, FAQ resources, training materials, weekly check-ins and feedback to all our mentors and mentees.

How can you participate?

As with everything in our community, this is a free global initiative. Simply fill out the below form and choose whether you'd like to sign up as a mentor or a mentee

(not both)
. We will then do 1-1 matchmaking based on your responses and match each mentor with a mentee. Our cohorts have a maximum of 50 mentors x mentees matched so the more detailed you are in your response, the more helpful it will be to match you.
