Monthly DEI in a Box Virtual Event Series
Once a month, PledgeLA hosts a discussion gathering leaders from LA tech and VC to tackle specific areas of diversity and inclusion work. Our goal is to share and scale actionable tools to help you advance your impact.
Today, there is more dialogue than ever before about how to support young professionals from underrepresented backgrounds that want to break into tech. We’re asking: is “mentorship” enough to achieve this? What do mentors bring to the table and how can mentors serve as advocates for their mentees? This real-talk, action-oriented conversation focuses on how the tech and VC community can work together to further support young professionals and reframe “mentorship.”
