January 28, 2022 — Femmecubator officially welcomed its first cohort of mentorship matches into the family this Friday! From The Bay Area to St. Louis, to San Antonio to NYC, Minneapolis to Florida, and everywhere inbetween – we are starting something. It’s all virtual, allowing us to meet from anywhere, anytime.
Mentorship is at the core of the Femmecubator mission. The operations team had been talking about pairing up people for quite some time now. And the program is finally alive!
It was so great hosting this intimate gathering. I loved how folks shared some cool commonalities like being self-learners to top earners, coming from wildly different industries, to getting into freelancing, to breaking into UX, there was such a range of experiences, goals and opportunities!
For the next 8 weeks, people who are matched will develop a mentorship relationship based on the goals they discussed during their 35-min breakout room discussion. As a squad, we are sharing space in a season of becoming..
I was truly inspired from the tip-top of the night when we toasted to Krizia’s quotable and motivational moment, till the very end when we signed off listening to Janelle Monae’s Turntables. This matters. We are being the change we wanna see and feel in the world!
Cheers to what’s to come! Keep eyes out for Mentor Match, I know there will be many connections and success stories out of this 🙂
And big thanks to everyone involved in the program (as well as those supporting and promoting it!) It’s exciting to build something new again out in the open with all of you. #thisisjustthestart
I will be sitting down with members of community in the coming weeks for a “Meet the Mentors” interview series. So make sure you’re following @Femmecubator on Linkedin + @Femmecubator on Instagram & hit subscribe down below to get notified when a new article drops!
