Our New Mentorship Program
By Crown Affair
We're excited to announce our first initiative, Seedling, a professional development program that connects women in the early stages of their careers (or transitioning careers) with female leaders in a variety of industries. In times like these, a traditional career trajectory may not be as viable as it once was, so we’re connecting our community and planting the seed for future growth, deeper relationships, and empowerment for everyone involved.
When the COVID-19 crisis hit, we wanted to find a meaningful way to contribute in addition to donating a percentage of our sales. As an all-woman company founded by a CEO with an unconventional career path, we realized professional development and networking was something we could offer those whose career paths may be interrupted before they even begin.
Seedling is an eight week program that consists of two group chats and six one-on-one sessions. Each paired session will have a prompt provided in advance to guide the conversation. We kicked off our pilot run this spring with undergraduates from Claremont Colleges and NYU, as well as women in various stages of their careers, and have since decided to make this a permanent initiative for our brand.
Applications for Seedling Session 2 are now closed. If you'd like to inquire about becoming a mentor or mentee for future sessions, we invite you to apply below.
Please note spots are limited and an application does not guarantee admission.
