The Emerging Professionals Network (EPNet) seeks both mentors and mentees for the third annual FeedBack mentorship program.

This program aims to:

  • Provide the structure for meaningful mentorship relationships to take shape
  • Support the growth of emerging professionals
  • Encourage design professionals at all stages of their careers to exchange ideas with people at different levels
  • Empower emerging professionals to be active participants in the act of mentoring

The program connects each mentee with five mentors. Throughout the five-month program, each mentor-mentee match will meet once. At the end of five months, you will have begun a relationship with one, a few, or all of the people you’ve met.

Once paired, each mentee should contact their mentors to coordinate a time and a place for their meeting. The setting is up to each pair: lunch, coffee, office visit, or any other casual and appropriate outing that both mentor and mentee agree on (virtual or in-person).

After the program ends, it is up to each participant to build upon the foundation set by the initial meeting.

Time commitment:

  • One mandatory two-hour kickoff on Wednesday, September 29
  • One meeting per month, for five months = five meetings total
  • One two-hour wrap-up event in March

If you’re interested in being considered as either a mentor or mentee for this program please fill out the Google Form on this page by clicking “apply”. Applications are due Wednesday, September 8 at 11:59pm.

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance the fourth week of September. All participants must attend the FeedBack Kickoff on Wednesday, September 29. (Tentative locations: BSA or Zoom, please indicate your preference on the application.)
