This will be a panel style event where panelists will share first-hand lessons from the field in how to seek and access mentorship when you’re from a traditionally underrepresented community within the nonprofit and fundraising industry.

  • Gain communication skills to create a strong and successful mentor-mentee relationship
  • Hear firsthand how mentors’ and mentees’ intersectional identities have impacted and enhanced the mentor-mentee relationship
  • Learn tactics to seek and access mentorship, both within and outside of the workplace
