Plans as an ONA Journalism Mentorship Collaborative Fellow
SB Nation’s mentorship program’s goal is to offer SB Nation staff members an opportunity to network, develop skills, and create a support system for themselves. During the first fellowship period, we’d like to get our mentorship launched and run one 12-week session.
Long-term mentorship program goals
We know that there is a shortage of good mentors, specifically for women and people of color. The long-term goal for this mentorship is to extend beyond just our organization to create a network of positive role models and mentors for people in the sports space at all level of their careers, from high school up.
