The WIFI Mentoring Program, which launches in April 2023, is an adult-to-adult match of a mentor to a mentee designed to help you grow professionally and personally. The mentoring program is a six-month commitment consisting of sessions with each mentor and mentee match. Sessions will be virtual using conferencing software.

Women from any corner of the floorcovering industry—residential, commercial, installation, corporate, design, build, etc., are invited to become a mentor or a mentee.
