Mentor Method Advisor, Angel Investor, Former Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion at Target

Hi, I'm Janice. Here's my story.

I'm passionate about this problem because of my own search for a mentor early in my career. I knew finding a mentor was important for my career development, so I set out to find one at my first job out of college.

The journey to find a mentor was long, full of awkward or painful moments. I spent time at too many networking events in hopes of meeting the right mentor. I tried in-office mentor programs only to be disappointed by the program’s results. I had no say in who I was matched with and felt coerced into speaking “on brand”. My “mentors” were deeply ingrained in the company’s culture, unable to consider my personal goals beyond the workplace.

Based on those experiences, I’m confident there are many other young professionals disillusioned by the mentor search. Finding a mentor should be rewarding from the start. I want to make sure that it's easier for minorities to get past the initial career roadblocks and, with a mentor’s guidance, start harnessing the power of their strengths and goals.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to make it easier for advocates of tech's future to reach driven, diverse women and people of color using the power of mentoring. Our vision is to be the leading community of hustlers and hackers, creating cultures driven to design the future.

The Mentor Method is a social enterprise, and as such reinvests the majority of its gross revenue to ensure the fulfillment of its mission.
