IMG 9496On January 17th, the WIE Garinger Mentoring Across Difference (GMAD) program received the 2019 Grassroots Mentoring Organization of the Year Award presented by the Mayor's Mentoring Alliance.

The Mayor's Mentoring Alliance Awards recognizes the extraordinary impact mentorship has on our community.  As some of you may know, the Mayor's Mentoring Alliance educates mentoring organizations about best practices and mentoring standards, ignites impactful and enduring mentor-mentee relationships and connects Charlotte's mentoring community.

WIE Board Chair, Kaniche Bennett, expressed her appreciation,  "Thank you to our very own Dorothy (Dot) Counts, Donna Parker-Tate, Tara Hammons, Stephanie Counts, and Sandra James for the magnificent work done throughout 2018 and we can't wait to see what is in store for 2019! Thanks for your commitment to our mentees and their continued personal and educational development".  

Thanks to Mentor Erin Barbee, Director of Mission Advancement at Aldersgate United Methodist Retirement Community for nominating WIE for this recognition.
