This program aims to help individuals starting their careers figure out their next steps with a fellow alumnx who has already navigated a similar professional path. Goal program outcomes for mentees include increasing professional networks, gaining better strategies to move forward in their chosen career track, and fostering professional skills and growth.
Mentoring will run February through August 2018. Mentoring can be conducted over the phone/virtual and need not be geographically situated near the mentee. The program consists of at least 1 monthly contact—in-person, email, or video chat—and is generally a 1-to-2-hour monthly time commitment. Note: Mentees may be mentored in individual or group settings, per the preference of the mentor. Group setting benefits include an expanded network with people in similar fields, in addition to more momentum and energy typical in a group setting.
SAVE THE DATE: A kickoff orientation lunch will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2018 to introduce mentors and mentees. The first mentoring session will also be held at orientation.
Mentor applications will be open through Monday, December 18, 2017
