Mentorship Program

Our Winter 2020 Round finished with 25 partnerships made. Our next Round will open in Spring 2020 and it will be open to Student RGD Members graduating in 2020 (for Certified RGD Mentors) and for all other Student RGDs (for Provisional RGD Mentors).


Provisional RGD Members are invited to apply to participate in this Program 2 times a year. Each time, a new group of Mentors are available, all of whom are senior professionals working in the industry, offering unique perspectives and advice to their Mentees. 


This program is normally only open to Provisional RGDs. Student RGDs in their final year of study will have access to a separate mentorship program in the future.


After the deadline, RGD will review all applications with our Mentors to create pairings. Then we will be in touch to connect you with your Mentor. Over 9 months, mentees can schedule up to 6 one-hour sessions with their Mentors. Sessions can be in-person or virtual depending on the location of your Mentor. RGD provides suggested discussion topics but you and your Mentor can decide what to discuss in each session, based on what each Mentor proposes below. Any Provisional RGD not paired with one of our Mentors will be given the opportunity to participate in the Program with a different RGD Mentor in the industry with similar qualifications.
