CAPSTONE PROJECT

The Queer Women of Esports Capstone Project is designed to showcase our mentor and mentee’s talents, create a more diverse and inclusive community, and stimulate both professional and personal growth throughout the course of the mentorship program.

Find a spark. 

 

Starting from the day they are accepted into the program, mentees are encouraged to think about how they can use their skills and leverage their mentor’s expertise to improve the esports and gaming industry. 

Build upon your idea. 

After settling on one or two barriers that resonate with the mentee, they are encouraged to begin thinking about solutions they can enact themselves. How can you utilize your resources, and leverage your mentors, to create real change? 

Use your resources. 

Mentees are paired with industry leaders who are allied with the mission of QWE and are encouraged to draw upon the wealth of their knowledge to formulate and enact their project. Mentors are encouraged to connect mentees with any relevant connections or resources that are needed to see the project to fruition. 

Teach & Inspire. 

At the end of the six-month mentorship program, mentees are given the opportunity to present their project to their fellow classmates, as well as an independent review board. Top projects will receive a monetary scholarship.
