WE LEAD
WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE

MidAmerica Nazarene University
2030 East College Way
Olathe, KS 66062-1899

Engage

ENGAGE, the third element of WE LEAD, combines community outreach and alumni involvement into a formal mentoring program.
Young women are often completely unaware of the challenges—both personal and professional—that they may face during their transition to professional life and throughout their career. Becoming aware of these challenges and having someone to discuss these issues with can help young women prepare and, ultimately, be more effective and increase satisfaction with their work and their life.

ENGAGE pairs college-aged women with experienced women, allowing for personal connections to flourish.

As an ENGAGE mentor you can share stories of your life and give hope to these students. Together we will build a safe space to discuss personal topics. By joining our community of women, we will help the next generation of women grow, provide support and encouragement, and a place for vulnerability and hard questions.
