She was curious, entrepreneurial and above all, she was a mentor to many. Ruth Handler was truly revolutionary.

2020 SPRING/SUMMER SESSION: MENTOR AND MENTEE SIGN-UP IS OPEN
This is an extraordinary opportunity for mentees and mentors alike. It’s a shared learning experience, in which both the mentor and mentee will learn and grow. Mentoring is a tremendous developmental opportunity and demonstrates you’re committed to being a leader; being a mentee is a fantastic way to hone your leadership skills and build your network in the toy, licensing and entertainment industries.
To qualify as a mentee, you must be an active WIT member. All members and non-members are invited to enroll as a mentor.
We invite mentors and mentees of all professional levels in the toy, licensing and entertainment industries to enroll. Please click below to sign up and a member of our staff will contact you shortly.
NOTE: Mentoring is a working relational experience through which one person empowers and enables another by sharing their wisdom and resources. Although mentoring has some overlap with a business coach or consultant, participation in this program is not intended to be used for the "how to." For those wishing to learn about the industry and would like a "who's who," we recommend they hire a business consultant.
