Gateway Program

Applications for 2023 Cohort accepted through October 1, 2022.

USITT’s Gateway Program is a mentorship opportunity for students from underrepresented populations within our industry. A professional mentor for a similar background and career path will guide and maximize each mentee’s experience at the USITT Annual Conference & Stage Expo. Launched in 2014, the Gateway Program connects diverse emerging professionals with established industry mentors.

Those who want to help support USITT in its equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts can do so by contributing to the Tayneshia Jefferson Fund for Inclusion HERE. You may learn about all USITT donor opportunities HERE.
