Every 6 months, I will be taking on a new mentee. This is because I believe strongly in giving back. Toni Morrison said ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else.’
I know that I often was able to take a step up in my career because somebody believed in me and took a chance on me. I know some of the most rewarding times in my career have been when I’ve been able to give someone else that chance. And so each 6 months, I’ll be inviting someone new to work with me every month and offer them any support I can in making it in the marketing world. I’d really love it if that person could be from the LGBTQIA+ community (see why here), but it’s not absolutely necessary. If you’d like me to mentor you, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know why, and why you think I could help you.
