MIA Women in Stone Mentorship Program Debuts at Coverings

Posted on 14 April 2016 by cradmin

The Marble Institute of America (MIA) announced the implementation of its Women in Stone Mentorship Program. The program pairs industry veterans with newcomers to provide an opportunity to build relationships in the stone industry. Each pair will receive monthly guidance emails throughout the six month program to help them get to know each other and their respective career goals. The guidance emails will provide reminders and help ensure engagement and success in the program. Mentorship topics will include stone industry knowledge, sales, marketing and communication, technical knowledge, management, leadership and career advancement. Pairs will be matched and guidance will begin in early May 2016. Registration deadline for the program is April 27, 2016. Late registrations will not be accepted.

The Women in Stone Mentorship Program will debut at Coverings with a Speed Mentoring Workshop on Wednesday, April 20 from 1:30 to 3pm. The workshop, led by Julie Kantor of Twomentor, will give attendees the chance to participate in an organized rotation to build relationships and establish a network of peers within the stone industry. This is also a great opportunity to get to know some of the potential mentors/mentees in the six month program. To register for this free workshop, visit www.coverings.com.

There will also be a celebration for four Women in Stone honorees on April 20 in the Stanley Field Hall at Chicago’s Field Museum from 6:30pm to 11:00 pm. Black Equinox: A VIP Event sponsored by Polycor and in collaboration with Women in Stone and Texastone Quarries, where cocktails, wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Enjoy conversation with stone and design industry influencers, talk on the seductive black trends in design and architecture, and enjoy a live Japanese drumming performance from Kodo. Registration is required.
