Dialogues | The Impact of Mentorship


Mentorship is an important way pre-career and emerging arts leaders can gain transformational knowledge, strong networks, and lifetime collaborators; especially for BIPOC arts administrators. In this panel discussion, we speak with three individuals who have been impacted by mentorship themselves, and have continued to create change in the field by becoming mentors themselves. Join Elise Drew Leon and Esther Jeong in a conversation on the impact mentorship has on BIPOC arts leaders.

Participants will engage with:

  • Stories and experiences of BIPOC leaders and their reflections to why mentorship was impactful in their career trajectory
  • How mentees and mentors alike can support one another towards their pathways through arts leadership
  • Suggestions and tips on how mentees can best engage with a mentor

This session is a part of the DIALogues Professional Development Collection. You can register for the full collection here. Can’t make an event live? Register anyway for access to the recording.

Please note that while this session is open to all, it was curated with the intention of supporting college students, pre-career, and emerging leaders traditionally underrepresented within the arts field.
