Become a Mentor for the EOL Mentorship Program


Dear Valued Member,

The Emerging Optical Leaders (EOL) are currently in need of mentors to participate in this year's EOL mentorship program, as popularity has grown for EOL members to take advantage of the program's offerings.

As part of the program, each mentor and mentee will receive a copy of the 212 Leadership Book as a resource to navigate this year's conversations. Varying time commitments—from 30-60 minutes per month—are asked of each mentor to allow for flexibility in tailoring the program to fit each mentee's personal and professional needs.

Additionally, this year's Executive Summit includes the following events for EOL mentorship program participants:

  • Mentorship Program Introduction: Wednesday, Jan. 30, 6:15 p.m.–6:45 p.m.
  • Mentor and Mentee Breakout with Jeff Cherry: Thursday, Jan. 31, 5 p.m.–6 p.m.
  • Mentorship Breakfast: Friday, Feb. 1, 7:30 a.m.–8:00 a.m.

If you are interested in participating in the program, please fill out the form, here. The first six submissions will be matched with a mentee. If you are not selected this year, you will be placed on a list for consideration in the future.
