Women Rise Albuquerque began as a solution to a problem that is widespread and widely known. The problem is this; women in Albuquerque are leaving at a rapid pace to take their talents to sister communities such as, Denver, Phoenix and others. 

Our solution was to create a service where women who are seeking a mentor can come to us to be matched with one. As an organization our board and president believe that a key result of their success is due to another woman guiding them through their career and life. 

By filling out a mentee profile, at our Mentorship page listed above, we match you with another woman who is in the field you are in or desire to be in. We facilitate the first meetup and offer other events where you and your mentor can attend to create a stronger bond.  


We are always looking for mentors as well! Please fill out a mentor profile on our Mentorship page listed above to give back to another woman in Albuquerque. Creating a community of successful women is our goal, with your participation as a mentor we can strive to keep talented women in Albuquerque. Where women grow - economies and quality of life grow. 


To be a part of our community, which includes mentor/mentee pairing and other mentorship events, you must be a member with us. Please visit our Membership page above to register as a member for $25.00 a year.
