GBTA WINiT 1:1 Mentoring is a global virtual mentorship program for passionate and talented professionals in business travel. It connects a cohort of mentees from around the globe with accomplished industry veterans committed to helping them navigate their careers.
Over the course of six months, mentees and mentors will meet at least twice a month to maximize their mentoring relationships. At the end, you will have the option to pause or continue your relationship. Both mentees and mentors must be GBTA members.
Application for the third cohort will close on January 12, and the mentorship will begin on January 22.

Why Become a WINiT Mentor?
Becoming a mentor is a great way to give back to our community and make a difference in the lives of individuals in business travel. Join other seasoned professionals in sharing your knowledge, experience and wisdom with talented professionals from around the world, helping them navigate their careers.
How Does It Work?
Mentors and Mentees complete an online application indicating strengths — and for mentees, areas of opportunity. Mentors and mentees are matched, and the mentoring relationship begins. While our mentoring program is a one-to-one mentoring relationship, we use a cohort model — meaning that our mentoring groups start their six-month journey together, benefitting from shared mentoring events. The WINiT 1:1 Mentoring Platform will also serve as an ongoing resource for enabling connections to chat, blog, share videos, a resource library, and ultimately schedule meetings and host events.
Who Is Eligible to Join?
GBTA members are welcome to apply to participate in the mentoring program as a mentor or a mentee.
