The Summer 2022 interVivos Mentorship Program launching on June 27, 2022, will amplify the voices of diverse 2SLGBTQ+ mentors and showcase their impressive work and valuable insights. Register now as a protégé!
This program will create a safe, trustworthy, supportive, welcoming, inclusive, and reciprocal atmosphere for all participants. We recognize the importance of diversity and supporting one another in creating a sense of belonging for all. Protégés from all backgrounds are welcome to register. Protégés do not need to identify as 2SLGBTQ+ to participate in this program. We encourage our Summer 2022 mentors and protégés to pick a match that looks different from them.
Here’s what some recent interVivos participants said about their experience:
“I loved the opportunity to work through some of the professional roadblocks and barriers I had been experiencing and having the feedback and guidance of someone who had been through similar situations and could help me to navigate them. My mentor also provided me with tangible exercises that I could do to help me gain clarity about my professional aspirations and goals and practically talk through how I can achieve them (or take the first steps). My mentor also has a wealth of knowledge about their industry since they are in a field that I am personally interested in--they had great resources to link me to and networks to connect with. ”
“It felt like I could fit professional advancement into my already busy schedule with the flexibility of the program requirements. My mentor was so fantastic, and her success inspires me! Our relationship is a place of mutual learning and respect, and I am looking forward to fostering this connection. We worked through some complex challenges, and I feel like I made some significant progress.”
“I've been a part of many networking opportunities in the past years, wine and cheese, speed networking, etc., in both the capacity of protégé and mentor. I've seen some terrible things happen out of these events because of the power dynamics that are the foundation of networking sometimes. I entered interVivos with very low expectations, but I was so pleased with this program. You all have worked very hard, and it shows! The structured approach and all the thoughts and care you put in from the training to considerations about power, to social media promotion, to the little thank-you's - it's all very much appreciated. Thank you for having me--I've enjoyed my experience!”. The following are the confirmed volunteer mentors for the Summer 2022 mentorship program:
