OPEN Madison
Mentor Program

OPEN is swiftly becoming one of Madison’s signature professional development organizations.  With an emphasis on the LGBTQ community, OPEN strives to connect and create LGBTQ talent in the Madison Region.  By making those connections and encouraging career development, the organization can demonstrate that LGBTQ professionals can find welcoming career advancement opportunities right here and allow those individuals to continue to enhance the cultural fabric that is Madison.

The OPEN Mentor/Mentee  program matches someone looking for career advancement, whether they are a student, young professional, or someone just making a career change, with a seasoned business professional that has established networks and can offer guidance in this time of career transition.  We are actively seeking those interested in serving as both mentors and mentees.  

Program Description:

  •      Matched mentor/mentees agree to meet every-other month during the first year of the program

  •       Matches agree to make the August and October events, if possible

  •      After matching, we will facilitate a welcome and introductions, a goal setting activity, and potential discussion topics for the individual meetings.

  •      OPEN will send an email to the group in May, July, and August reminding pairs to find a time to meet. The message will include discussion topics to choose from.
  •     Professional development opportunities will be offered periodically.
