The Professional Development Section serves to help WIIT members advance their careers through a variety of activities and resources. The Section hosts brown bag lunches on professional development topics, oversees a Mentor Program and serves as the local point of contact for the OWIT online Job Bank.
WIIT offers a unique experience for women of all ages to come together and discuss their experience in international trade. The Mentor Program enables women to learn from others through partnerships and by further tapping into WIIT's great network. Members say that an important benefit of joining WIIT (besides the great programs!) is that it provides access to a network of professionals who possess invaluable experience from which many can learn. We particularly encourage anyone who would like to be a Mentor (which is not a large time commitment) to contact WIITMentor@yahoo.com
