Become A Mentor
Diversify your workplace with a network of global students!
Mentoring a student is an opportunity to expand perspectives, provide context and access to new ways of doing things, and a way to add capacity to your teams. Mentoring serves as an amplifier for leadership skills but is often mutually beneficial for both the mentor and mentee to explore new ideas, new knowledge, and tackle challenging issues. Mentorship will give you a chance to give back while increasing your own eligible talent pool.
