Posted on November 06, 2018

In response to membership feedback, EPIP Bay Area is proud to launch the pilot of a new Mentorship Program to connect young, emerging professionals in philanthropy with experienced practitioners in order to expand networks, deepen learning opportunities, and strengthen professional development.

Inspired by EPIP National’s strategic framework and similar programs hosted by EPIP Boston, EPIP DC, and EPIP LA, the Bay Area chapter sees this as an opportunity to support our members in their internal and external advocacy and our shared commitment to equity and social justice in philanthropy.

The inaugural 2018-2019 cohort includes up to 10 emerging and mid-level leaders and up to 10 seasoned professionals who are paired for one-on-one Mentoring Partnerships.
