QTI*BIWOC MENTORING

QTI*BIWOC Mentoring

No matter where you are in your career or life, the right mentor* can energize you and provide counsel when you need it.  And being a mentor* can provide great personal satisfaction, and more importantly offers new perspectives and deepen leadership skills.
Keeping our intersectional approach in mind, we not only want to boost our careers, but also empower each other and share strategies how to fight racism, transphobia, sexism, classism etc, that often hold our careers back.

We are now in the process of getting profiles of mentor*s and mentee*s ready to start our program. So get involved and register. We want to address the needs properly and indivually, this might take some time.
We are also aware of the time issue in our communities and therefore creating different formats to make it easier for each one of us to participate.
The planed formats are:

One mentee* and one mentor* with similar biografies who can co-teach one another. The experience level of each person can vary. We will conatct each person before we pair a tandem team.

This format allows one mentor* to take multiple mentee*s under her/their wing. We will help you to organise a workshop or you simply meet casualy over a coffee and go from there.

This events in a speed dating format will allow mentee*s to meet many mentor*s, while rotating in 5min intervals, and pepper them with questions. Each event will have a topic, e.g. building a business, finance etc.

Every now and then we will get some badass women* together to make their biografies visible. In a discussion they will share their stories and strategies how to get to the top despite facing so many obstacles.

MENTOR*

We are looking for women* of colour here in Berlin, who can pass on their experiences to other women* of colour and take them under their wing. Experiences and knowledge vary and we would like to bring people together who have similar biografies or interests. You decide where your expertise lies and how much time you can invest in our community.
You should be willing to be open and honest about your experiences so mentee*s can truly learn from you.

Please register by sending us an email with your details, CV, how much time you would like to invest and which format appeals to you the most. We will get back to you as soon as possible with more information. And please don’t be shy or too modest. If you have doubts or questions contact us and we figure it out together.
