What we do

The IACS mentoring program is intended to cultivate the next generation of South Asian American professional leaders through mentoring, skills building, and networking. The program pairs South Asian American professionals with experienced leaders in their field. The purpose of the mentoring program is to engage, excite and enlighten students, young adults and experienced professionals who want to take a more active role in pursuing their career and life interests.

How we do it

Through an online application process, IACS matches participants based on skills, career industry or professional interests. Participants will create a brief profile outlining their educational/professional backgrounds and what they hope to achieve from the program. IACS will match participants with mentors who have the appropriate professional experience, leadership skills and character traits to help them identify ways to achieve professional and personal goals.

As a part of the program, mentors and mentees will define the goals of their mentorship and agree upon a timeline. We strongly recommend that all matched pairs meet at least once a month or more frequently as personal schedules permit.
