2020 Program Launch
Kindness and Knowledge in Action
We are delighted to officially announce that our PINKK Mentoring 2020 Program will launch as planned this month.
As the Founder of PINKK, I am committed to making this a successful program for all this year. We are all in this together.

This current crisis reinforces our very real need for kind leadership and to be there for our community during these challenging times. It also further supports the PINKK mission of women supporting women from all walks of life. It matters.

Knowledge and Kindness are two key tenets of PINKK that are needed now more than ever. 
We have thoughtfully evaluated all and we will move forward and launch our program to meet the needs of our community.
We will be agile and adapt as we need to with virtual, on line or other accommodations and management as deemed appropriate. Of course, the well-being of our community is our first priority as always. This is no different.

Call for applications: April 22.
Below is additional information on the program:
  • April 22 applications and details available @ PINKK Mentoring
  • May 23 - application deadline extended
  • Applications for both mentors and mentees are also below for submission in addition to a self-assessment which can help us determine how to match up the mentor and mentee teams.


  • Upon acceptance additional course materials will be provided to guide the process.
  • The program is offered complimentary for PINKK members and for mentors. For mentees there is a $125 fee that will be due upon acceptance into the program. SCHOLARSHIPS available.

  • Note: Junior membership is $75 and student is $35 so if you fit that category it may be more cost efficient to join and get all the benefits of PINKK membership.

  • We also will grandfather in mentees from our 2019 PILOT Program and we are prepared to offer scholarships for those mentees that are in need. *Please note that in your application and we will take all into account as we want to be of service to all as best we can right now.

  • Program duration: 12 weeks.

  • It takes a community to do this. We are delighted that PINKK will again be partnering with KJ Company this year for mentoring management and now have PINKK Founding Member, Tita Arroyo as assistant manager on the program. We have amazing leadership and support for which we are grateful.
  • If you choose, the mentoring can be done remotely as we had varied cities involved in the pilot and can help guide the process.

We are all in this together! WE LOOK FORWARD to another successful mentoring program. PINKK is committed to being a resource and community of knowledge, inspiration and kindness for all who need it, especially during these challenging times. Onward!

Have you wondered how your personal story can affect and inspire others? Flying by the Seats of Their Skirts i s a collection of stories from real women that do just that.
In addition to inspiring you, we hope the book will also perhaps cause you to pause, reflect, and go ahead and write your own story. Be transparent, vulnerable and truthful as you share it with the world!
Flying by the Seats of Their Skirts includes…

  •  A captivating story in each chapter, written by a woman using one word that currently defines how she is showing up in the world. 
  • Stories with a foundation in kindness via topics like resilience, gratitude, bravery, perseverance, giving, hunger, passion, positivity and more.
  • Empowering you with the knowledge that the same challenges we all face will continue when good capable women do nothing. These stories break that mold.
  • True stories that are real, raw, and powerful. They’re here for you—with great love. Break out and share your true self with the world!
  • Here are the tools to help you do all of that and more. So, come fly with us and let’s soar together!
