BIPOC Mentorship Program for Students & Recent Graduates
The PR Net BIPOC Mentorship Program is a mentorship and career development program led by industry founders and senior executives, to advance BIPOC students and recent graduates in the field of marketing and communications.
The program will offer invaluable mentoring and coaching by leaders in various practice areas, with a view to gain the program participants practical skills to aid their careers and paid employment on completion. The mentors will leverage their connections and make introductions for job positions following the course.
Commencing in April 2021, it is a 12 week program, with one to two hour long weekly sessions between mentors and their mentees. The syllabus will cover topics that prepare mentees for entering the workforce, educate them on current industry conditions and best practices, offer assignments and practical work experience and provide a real world, empirical understanding of how to break into and progress in the industry.
You’d be hard pressed to find someone not nursing a major travel itch right now. While some restrictions have been lifted, we still have a ways to go from the world being wide open again. In the meantime, we asked the experts to assess the state of travel today, plus what we can expect from this ever-changing industry at least through the rest of this year.
