About Magnify Mentoring
Magnify Mentoring supports, inspires, and connects a global community of women, non-binary, and trans people of all genders who are motivated to have a positive impact with their careers and lives. Since starting in 2019, we have grown to a global network of over 500 community members, spanning over 50 countries, and all inhabited continents. We are piloting projects to determine the feasibility and effectiveness of expanding our services to support more people with mentorship, specifically those from traditionally underrepresented groups.
How it works
Our team and expert advisors pair mentees who are interested in pursuing high-impact careers with more experienced mentors for a series of one-on-one meetings. On average, mentees and mentors meet once a month for 60-90 minutes. To facilitate discussion, we provide optional prompt questions. Through our Slack and multiple networking events we offer mentees access to a broader community with a wealth of professional and personal expertise. We also run training led by external professionals on a diversity of topics such as public speaking, building networks, and setting professional and personal boundaries, catered to our mentees needs.
