The Pride Leadership Forum is held with the purpose of celebrating and honoring members of the LGBTQ+ community as leaders in the workplace. This forum offers participants the opportunity to explore best leadership practices and principles in relation to LGBTQ+ identities, equity and inclusion in the workplace.

pride leadership forum diversity mentoring program

what the program includes

1:1 mentoring

Employees select topics of their choosing for areas of growth and leverage our technology to self-select a mentor of their choice on that topic for 3-months. At the culmination of those 3-months, participants select a new area of growth and a new mentor – resulting in a total of 4 mentors per year.

employee-level group mentorship & coaching

Every other month, employee mentoring sessions are provided for these participants to engage in. Providing a space for public speakers, a variety of insights and group coaching from other employees across the country. 

mentoring certification

Ensuring our mentors and mentees are having impactful conversations is key! We teach each employee through a five-session coursework on how to be a successful mentor and certify them at their completion. 

capacity building tools

Accessing our robust Skills Learning Library provides additional tools and resources that your employees can access 24/7. This library of resources covering more than 40 topics in both personal and skill development provides additional guidance for growth. 

“I don’t think you could find a more dedicated group of professionals focused on the overall success of your mentoring program.”

why do some mentoring programs fail?

poor planning

Without a plan, any number of things can go wrong without the strategy in place to address those issues.

With Engage Mentoring: Our program is organized an in-place offering the structure, resources, and support you need for ongoing success.

not scalable

In-house programs often put a massive burden on internal staff trying to facilitate the program. 

With Engage Mentoring: Our fully administered program and Engage Mentoring software can scale as much as you need!

traditional hierarchies

Typically, mentoring relies on traditional hierarchies which aren’t structured with personalized professional development in mind.   

With Engage Mentoring: We match mentees and mentors based on relevant skills & interests. 

insufficient training

Many programs don’t provide participants enough context for how to be an effective mentor/mentee.

With Engage Mentoring: We provide the resources and tools along with our structured, proven program to help mentors & mentees reach their goals. 

lack of measurement

Programs without measurables or analytics don’t have insights into program effectiveness.

With Engage Mentoring: Our mentoring software includes a helpful analytics dashboard with ongoing reporting. Plus we’ll review metrics with you.

bad matching

Oftentimes we hear programs don’t prioritize matching candidates to those who are a good fit leaving participants uncomfortable and without progress. 

With Engage Mentoring: We match mentees and mentors based on the goal development skills.

Our proprietary software allows you to filter and sort mentors on criteria that’s important to you (race, gender, years of experience, industry, etc.), allowing you to select a mentor that will resonate with you.

step 3: library of resources

Our program goes beyond connecting your team to mentors. We have developed a robust, curated library of learning resources for self-guided improvement.
