The SEEN NextGen Mentorship Program provided me with a network of life-long friends as well as two outstanding mentors that have supplied endless support, guidance and knowledge. I will be forever grateful and a huge advocate for all they do.

It was clear how intentional the mentor pairings were and the staff has done everything to ensure the mentees have had the support and resources needed to elevate in our respective career fields. As a result of the program and the guidance from my amazing mentors, I feel more confident and validated in my abilities.

I think one of the most beautiful parts about the SEEN Community is not only being mentored by professionals in the field, but  being side by side with a cohort of young professionals who are also trying to grow in the field.
