Why Pay It Forward
What We Need
A LinkedIn survey demonstrated that 82% of women believe that having a mentor is important to one's career trajectory. And yet 20% of women in the survey reported that they never had access to a mentor.
For women of color, it is even more difficult to find mentors - often times do to the lack of representation that exists. Women of color make up about 37% of the U.S. population, but they only comprise 3.2% of Fortune 500 Company Boards and 11.9% of managerial roles. It is critical that we provide young women of color with not only mentors, but supportive communities and practical tools to aid them in their early careers!
We are looking to have a wide representation of self-identified women and non-binary speakers and mentors to advise our mentees. If you are a women of color, identify as non-binary and/or are from another under-represented group, we really encourage and invite you to become a speaker or mentor within our programs. We envision a world where all women and non-binary folks have a living role model who they can look up to and see themselves.
