EPIP DC Mentorship Program 2018-2019

Posted on July 09, 2018

EPIP DC is proud to pilot a new mentorship program to help cultivate strategic, supportive relationships for professional and leadership development in our local network and philanthropic community.

Inspired by EPIP National’s strategic framework and the mentorship programs hosted by EPIP Boston and EPIP LA, the DC 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 10 emerging and mid-level leaders and 10 seasoned professionals who are paired for one-on-one Mentoring Partnerships. The program spans 7 months from September 2018 to March 2019 with a commitment of 2-3 hours per month, including monthly one-on-one meetings for Mentoring Partners, group social activities and networking events, and VIP space at chapter events.
