Networking & Mentoring

Women & Wisdom at Convention

Women & Wisdom is Alpha Chi Omega’s program providing professional and personal development opportunities to all members. We’re bringing our online mentoring and networking experience to convention – explore the many ways you can engage in Women & Wisdom while in Indianapolis!

Spend time in the Women & Wisdom Lounge

Throughout the weekend, our Women & Wisdom Lounge will offer opportunities for sisters to connect. It is the perfect spot to meet with sisters, make new friends and grow your Alpha Chi Omega network. 

Day one, stop by for various interest group meet-ups. We’ll announce the schedule closer to convention, and we’ll be using the information you share in your convention registration to select the groups. On Friday, you’ll also have the chance to have a professional headshot taken! 

On Saturday and Sunday, the Women & Wisdom Lounge will feature speed networking; professional development roundtables; and time to meet, greet and connect with alumnae and collegians.

Sign up for Convention Connections

The Women & Wisdom mentoring program is one of the many ways Alpha Chi Omega empowers members to connect and reach their potential through the Real. Strong. Women. Experience – and we’re offering this experience in Indianapolis through Convention Connections! Convention Connections is your opportunity to form a short-term mentoring relationship with a sister as part of your convention experience. Alumnae can participate as mentors, mentees or both. Collegians can participate as mentees. This is the perfect way to form a new connection, learn advice from alumnae, and support the personal and professional development of sisters! 

By signing up to participate, you’ll be matched with either an alumna or collegiate sister on the online Women & Wisdom platform using our mentoring algorithm. After receiving your match, you’ll be assigned milestones to complete in your new relationship. This includes communicating virtually prior to convention and setting up an in-person meeting while in Indianapolis.  

As a Convention Connections participant, we want you to meet with your match on-site during convention. It is up to you when you meet! The Women & Wisdom Lounge will be open throughout the weekend for your mentoring meet-ups, allowing you to easily connect with the sister you’ve been paired with. The goal of this mentoring experience is to create intentional connections at convention and hopefully introduce you to a sister that you’d like to continue the relationship with beyond the event!
