“HIT YOUR STRIDE” WITH IIDA WISCONSIN

A MENTORSHIP PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS AND EMERGING PROFESSIONALS.

IIDA WI is excited to announce the kick-off of its third year of STRIDE- our mentorship program that pairs design professionals with area students and emerging designers. Join your fellow IIDA members in Madison on October 4th at the 2nd floor gathering room at Fresh Market on University Ave. Mentors and mentees will team up over snacks and drinks to begin their journey together; to learn, network and grow professionally.

Pairs are selected based on location, but also matched to ensure areas of interest align. Have an interest in hospitality design? Committee members will do their best to connect you with a designer who works on hotel and restaurant design projects. Don’t know where you want to land? No worries! The program will best consider individual preferences, addressed through a series of questions asked during the program enrollment process.

Each participant agrees to a set of best practice guidelines to ensure a beneficial experience. Mentors will be asked to expose mentees to job responsibilities such as client presentations, jobsite tours, vendor meetings and industry or IIDA events. Similarly, mentees will be asked to document their experiences, keep scheduled commitments and complete a post program survey.        

Pairs will develop goals, agree upon meeting dates and schedules, and review expectations together. Stride is a platform to grow skills of both mentors and mentees and strengthen IIDA’s outreach capabilities for our design community.

Professional members, do you want to participate but have limited time? Sign up and note that you are interested for a one time meeting, or available to sponsor a firm or jobsite tour.
