Join our LGBTQ R.I.S.E Mentorship Program

R.I.S.E is a professional mentorship program with the goal of providing a safe space for growth and development of members of the LGBTQ+ community. This mentorship is driven by the mentee's goals and objectives.

We will partner mentees and mentors based on their self identified professional field of interest or goals. The mentors in our program are community members with industry experience that want to help others achieve their professional and personal life goals.
