Our year-long academic program was intentionally designed to help students gain the confidence and skills they need to enter and rise in any field they choose. 

Build confidence with us. Mentorship groups along with our international network of women and non-binary folks will give students the support and encouragement they need to take on new challenges.

Primary Mentors will lead their mentorship group through the curriculum and guide them throughout the year.

Academic Sessions

Lead students through a prepared curriculum teaching practical professional & leadership tools.

Seven professional development and leadership sessions are held throughout the year. Every session features a brief talk from a Session Anchor who will tell their professional story. Primary Mentors then facilitate a discussion among the group. Each session will end with a Challenge to apply that week's practical tool.

Sea Talks
 

Connect with other mentorship groups at other participating institutions.
