Get mentored from professionals you respect and admire through a virtual video conference. Mentorship sessions are limited to 20 participants to preserve the intimacy and relationship-building aspects. Participants must apply to attend and go through a screening process before being accepted. Accepted participants are assigned homework (e.g., review speeches, articles, books on the person) and must submit a prepared list of 3-5 targeted questions prior to the video session. This improves the execution of the session on both sides. Not only is this a more effective use of the mentor's time, but it also makes mentoring opportunities more accessible to people who might not otherwise have access to the mentor.
