We empower students through cultivating transformative communities.
We are a culturally, experientially, and professionally diverse team, bringing 8 years in program design, 4 years in equity-centered research and evaluation and over a decade of experience in higher-education.
FOR STUDENTS SEEKING MENTORSHIP & CAREER
We provide a COMMUNITY, a network of career and industry experts FOR graduate students who are ambitious early/mid-level Black and LatinX professionals in college. This service is a monthly membership for personal and professional growth.
Exclusive monthly EXPERT WEBINARS with LIVE Q&A , soft & hard skill development [behavioral, social, and career development skill building] & knowledge sharing.
Problem-Solving Sessions (e.g. Navigating career sponsorship, allies, and choosing the right soil to grow in as a person of color).
A private safe counterspace for self-care and a refueling respite.
Corporate reach back insights for ongoing dialogue and growth.
FOR COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES SEEKING to IMPROVE CURRENT MENTORSHIP PROGRAMS
WE facilitate leadership, career coaching, and MENTORSHIP RELATIONSHIPS between alumni of color and existing graduate & undergraduate students to create thriving school to business partnerships. Universities that create ecosystems and a constellation of trusting, supportive, and ongoing relationships are able to enhance their network effect. Investing in guidance for students, not just programming , makes all the difference as a driver for change.
We do this using our ICE (Identity-Culture-Experience) matching model alongside industry interest(s) for a best fit.
We coordinate onboarding, training, and cycles of check points to ensure positive, ongoing communication.
We serve as an invested yet neutral party to gather meaningful data that is most useful. We establish trust and facilitate dialogue to engage all stakeholders.
We enhance existing programming. Colleges and Universities can optimize their current resources from our pre/post/ assessments and data. This holistic approach provides a constellation of supports for current students and strengthens alumni connections.
