Portland Mentoring

Mentoring takes place in groups, which typically consist of a mentor and a small group of mentees. Each mentoring group will be self-directed to help ensure that each group is learning what is important to its members. Discussion topics may include, but are not limited to: career planning, work/life balance, navigating different work cultures, building confidence at work, assertive communication, networking, and project management.

Here are what past participants have said about the program:

I find the space very helpful that other people have had the same problems/growing pains I have felt in business and it is helpful to hear the next step they took.

[I enjoyed] bouncing ideas off each other, hearing about others’ successes, getting motivated to try harder and push more.

[I enjoyed] connecting with other professionals and broadening my knowledge and skillsets.
