OPERA America | Mentorship Program for Opera Leaders of Color
April 22, 2021
Opera America has created a new program, Mentorship Program for Opera Leaders of Color, which pairs BIPOC professionals with executive-level leaders who can support them in achieving their career goals. Applications for this program are due April 28, 2021.
The selected mentees will participate in a yearlong program designed to identify barriers and achievement gaps and then establish an action plan for professional growth and a long-term career trajectory.
This program was established as part of OPERA America’s sustained effort to eradicate racism and ensure equity and justice throughout the opera field. It responds to the industry’s history of exclusion toward people of color and seeks to address the systemic barriers that have limited the advancement of BIPOC professionals.
