Art of Honoring Leadership Development Mentoring Program

Wonderful Leadership/Mentoring Opportunity for TWO Female Students of Color

The Art of Honoring Leadership Development Mentoring Program is designed for first generation female, junior and senior or graduate students of color.

It is an 8-month program, meeting once a month from 9am-12:30pm, and the kick-off is October 6, 2011. The mentors are leaders within top corporations (3M Company, Wells Fargo, Boston Scientific, HealthPartners, Target) and the mentees are chosen from year Universities (U of M, Carlson School of Management, St. Catherine University, Bethel University, Hamline University, Metropolitan State University and Augsburg College) based on a specific criteria (see www.honoringwomenworldwide.org/content/view/54/83/ for more information). Many students participating in the program have gotten jobs and internships as well as mentors have gotten promotions.

We have received amazing results in the last two years. Students will grow their professional networks and build relationships with managers and recruiters at Fortune 500 companies.

The mentoring organizations contribute funding for each mentor and the colleges also contribute a small amount for each mentee, which covers materials, room rentals, refreshments and facilitators' fees.

If you are interested, please send a letter expressing your interest and background by Friday, April 22 to the Women's Center at the University of Minnesota at women@umn.edu.
