Connecting Across Generations

Our program is designed to harness the power of virtual connection. Not only does this make access more flexible for mentees and mentors, but it also leverages the convergence of online and off-line experiences. Our model propels us forward into the next generation, where messaging and video conferencing are essential to relationship building and ongoing professional success.

To Lead


Equity is the foundation of strong mentorship.
Through Leverage to Lead’s intentional equity trainings, mentors
practice ways of being that promote inclusion in a way that contributes
positively to their workplace and everyday lives. Mentors participate in
intentionally designed spaces where they are encouraged to show up
as their most authentic selves, and in doing so, learn to create a
similarly safe space for their mentees.
