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. Our Summer 2018 Round presented 17 Mentors. The next Round will open in June.
Fill out an application by February 15, where you will be asked to select your top two choices from a list of 12 mentors. This program is only open to Provisional RGDs. Student RGDs in their final year of student may also sign up for Student Mentorship Program here. (A new group of Mentors will be available in June.)
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.
