The AIGA Chicago Mentor Program is a celebrated gathering of creative individuals across disciplines and industries. It offers the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals on a path towards guided growth through mentorship. We’ve selected a group of mentors to share their passion and expertise within a particular area of focus.
We invite you to come, connect and collaborate in this 6-week Mentor Program to gain greater access to a wealth of continued education and design guidance.
Fall 2021 ─ Program Details
6-Week Mentor Program Our Fall 2021 Mentor Program will run for 6-weeks where participants will have access to their choice of Mentor along with (6) Mentor Sessions and private program-wide events.
Mentor Sessions Mentor Sessions will meet every week over the course of 6-weeks between individual mentor groups. Based on your Mentor’s meeting preference, you will either meet remotely, in-person, or a hybrid of both (remote and in-person). *Please see each mentor’s session location preference before deciding on your top 5 mentor groups. All groups are focused on a topic of expertise and passion and throughout the weeks, you’ll work as a group to grow in that topic of interest together.
Program-Wide Private Group Events Our Group Events are private events that were curated for the Mentor Program specifically. These events can range from studio tours, workshops, mixers, panels, and interactive events. Both Mentors and Mentees have access to these events.
Registration Registration opens Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 10am CST Registration closes Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 10pm CST
There’s also a hidden cost; your time! We ask that you commit your time to the full 6-weeks to get the best return.
