Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiative Mentorship Application
Thank you for your interest in applying to be a mentor for our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiative! Our initiative will work to increase the number of women and underrepresented students discovering and entering these industries. We believe this will expand our student reach and increase the diversity of experiences, knowledge, and skills in the art and technology industries.
Starting this September, students at 6 universities will receive a 1-year mentorship and experiential opportunities program. This program aims to provide students with 3 critical, measurable keys to career success: inspiration, access and experience. Our plan is to scale the program to support over 5,000 students at 54 universities by empowering faculty and campus staff to be our campus leaders and coordinating our network of 400+ industry mentors.
We are supporting 6 universities and colleges in 2019: Cal State University, Monterey Bay; Loyola University New Orleans; Spelman College; University of California, Riverside; University of Hartford; Wayne State University.
Our goals are ambitious and that is why we are turning to leaders within industry to become mentors of our DEI initiative.
