Executive Mentorship Program

Each academic semester, the Executive Mentorship Program provides 20 seniors and juniors the opportunity to connect with three individuals in Executive Roles for the purposes of discussing career paths and leadership.

Connecting Barnard Students to Transformative Leaders

The Executive Mentorship Program connects Barnard juniors and seniors to distinguished leaders in C-Suite and other senior roles across industries. Small-group meetings that take place on-site at offices around New York City provide the opportunity for Executive Mentorship Program Fellows to gain unique insights into leadership in industry, government, nonprofits, higher education, and more. Students complete three Executive Mentoring Sessions and complete reflection papers on their experiences. 

 This program is made possible by the philanthropic gift of Eugene Shvidler P'20. Students can learn about upcoming opportunities and apply to the program in Handshake. Questions can be directed to beyondbarnard@patriciagoldinteriors.com.
