Project Mentor is on a mission to spark professional growth for women in creative industries finding their first job or re-entering the workplace through a series of learning events and one-to-one mentoring designed to empower our next gen leaders.
Great organizations are driven by purpose not just profit.
In the power of mentorship, second chances and an open-mind.
That creativity makes the world sparkle.
That we live in a time where women are celebrated for listening and speaking their truth.
In celebrating dynamic, curious, and diverse women in creative industries.
In building an authentic community of female creatives that can empower one another through thoughtful engagement.
To be present. We are Project Mentor.
