1,000 Dreams Fund continues our commitment to elevating women in the content creation, esports, and gaming space with our first-ever BroadcastHER x MentorHER mentorship event. – launching in September 2022.
1,000 Dreams Fund’s MentorHER Initiative was created to begin a national dialogue about the importance of mentorship and its positive impact on the professional advancement of women – especially those in most need – while connecting them with the right mentor for a high impact mentoring session.
“To identify and elevate high-potential women in gaming, esports, and content creation, providing the industry with a pipeline of diverse talent to create equitable opportunity.”
This program serves as an unmatched pipeline opportunity for our corporate partners to team up and mentor the talented women we serve. This Fall, we’ll be bringing the power of mentorship to our BroadcastHER Community, focusing on making connections in fields relating to esports, gaming, and beyond.
We’ll be connecting our partner companies and their employees with early-stage professionals for 1:1, 60-minute virtual mentoring sessions. Our initiative reinforces the notion that even a small amount of time can make a big impact. Our BroadcastHER Initiative serves women including cis women, trans women, trans feminine, and those who face disparities and discrimination in correlation to misogyny and identity.
We know that busy working professionals want to share their hard-won advice but mentors often have limited time to do so. Our MentorHER Initiative was created to help provide them an opportunity to do so!
All we ask from our selected mentors and mentees is to be available for a virtual 60 minute mentoring session.
- Step 1: Call for mentors! Beginning August 2022, 1,000 Dreams Fund will put out a call for mentors. Most, if not all, of our mentors will come from our partner companies and organizations.
- Step 2: Call for mentees! At the same time, we invite interested women to apply to be mentored by professionals within their desired field internationally.
- Step 3: The Perfect Match! Using the results of custom questionnaire provided to both parties, 1DF makes the match and prepares each for their mentor session in September 2022!
