MENTORSHIP

This program seeks to better prepare queer people for their careers via the development of industry-relevant skills. Through mentorship, our aim is to create effective, lasting relationships that will positively impact our mentees, while further honing the leadership expertise of our mentors.

"I struggled a lot in my early professional life and had to figure out a lot of things on my own. Because I'm in a place now where I can confidently say I've been successful, I want to share my knowledge and experience so others don't have to struggle unnecessarily. The struggle is real, but not all struggle is necessary."

"One of the most valuable things I think anyone can do in their industry is extend a hand to help others. Mentoring matters to me because the next generation shouldn't have to learn the same lessons over and over again! I'm excited to help grow professional talent in the gaming, esports, and livestreaming spaces."

"As a queer woman in the gaming industry, I've been fortunate to learn from and follow in the footsteps of the many diverse trailblazers who've come before me. In these tough times, I felt compelled to share what knowledge and experience I could to help encourage and support the next generation of folx in this industry"
