Executive Mentor Program

The Executive Mentor Program matches senior-level business executives from the Denver metro area with Daniels graduate students. This program offers mentors, who volunteer their time, the opportunity to work with students to enhance their professional and personal skills. It is intended to educate students on how business is practiced, sharpen career readiness and build and strengthen professional networks.

Professionals with 10+ years of experience who are interested in becoming a mentor may contact Susan Goodwin. Mentors complete an application including a biography which students have the opportunity to review and select an Executive Mentor.

LEAD Mentorship Program

The LEAD (Learning by Example, Attaining Distinction) Mentorship Program pairs undergraduate business students with professionals in a similar field and/or career trajectory. Each mentor/protégé pair is encouraged to meet once per month throughout the school year, and attend a speed-networking kickoff event and year-end celebration. Protégés gain guidance and support from someone in their industry of choice, build connections with professionals in the community, and clarify their own goals and potential future career path. Mentors provide professional advice to a student interested in their industry, attract talent to their company to build their brand on campus, and foster connections with future professionals of their community.

Contacts for the LEAD Mentorship Program:

Hospitality majors: Jill Hartman and Dee Jay Driver
Accountancy majors: Jodye Whitesell
All other majors: Toni (Gabrielli) Phelan and Angie Jimenez
