Kansas WISE well-being and mentoring programs available for state of Kansas employees

Submitted by Benefits Team

The Kansas WISE, Women in State Employment, committee on personal development, self-care and wellness invites state employees to join them this summer for virtual events and group mentoring sessions.

May's session is "Understanding the 8 Dimensions of Well-Being," an hour exploring how to become your best self through honest reflection and well-being. This session will be from 2-3 p.m. Tuesday, May 14. Registration is free and open to all state of Kansas employees. Please register prior to the event to attend the Zoom meeting.

In addition to May's session, Kansas WISE is offering group mentoring sessions from May through August. Mentoring sessions are tailored for women in state employment and focus on supporting one another in professional and personal growth through shared experiences, knowledge and resources.

Each monthly event will include four breakout sessions. Here's how you can take part.

  1. Explore your options: Review the dates of each event and the four breakout sessions available. Choose from Networking and Relationship Building, Building Resilience, Digital Literacy and Cybersecurity Awareness, and Exploring Nontraditional Career paths. All four breakouts occur on each date available.
  2. Indicate your preferences: Use the application link below, and select the months and sessions that align with your interests and availability.
  3. Await your assignment: While you may choose multiple preferences, the mentoring organizers will assign you to one event and session to ensure broad participation and a small group setting for all attendees.

Application is first come, first serve, but preference will be given to those who have not previously participated in the Kansas WISE mentoring program. Space is limited, so please apply soon. Sessions occur from 2-3 p.m. May 13, June 10, July 8 and Aug. 12. Registration is free and open to all state employees. Please register on the WISE mentoring series form. This registration is separate from the May 14 event. Mentoring events will not be recorded.
