Getting started in technology is hard, especially when it seems no one is in your corner. A good mentor can change that. They can help you feel seen & heard. They have provide guidance, advice and strategy to navigate career challenges and opportunities. This program will match you with a mentor and provide that sounding board and guidance we all need in our careers.
About this event
A career mentor is someone who shares their knowledge and expertise with you in order to help you set goals, fix problems, and make good choices along your career path. If you're lucky, you'll have a mentor—or several—who will help you throughout your career, from your first roles through to retirement.
Finding that mentor can be hard, if not seem impossible. GDI wants to change this and has created this program to match our instructors & leaders with our community members who are interested in seeking mentorship.
We have created this unique program to help connect amazing mentors with our amazing community. This program is a commitment to meet virtually three times over the summer (June-August) for 45 minutes each time, as well as be available to connect on Linkedin and through other means to provide on going support.
The schedule for this program will be unique and determined by the mentor and mentee. Once you register, you will be connected with a mentor and you will work together to set the three times that work for both of you.
Class Cost: $240
GDI does pay our instructors for their time and will offer to reimburse our mentors for their time. This program is included in the GDI Personalized Membership and is 75% fo GDI Members & Scholarship Recipients. Learn more about membership here.
