MINARA: Muslim Mentorship in Action
Fostering connections between Muslim professionals and Stanford students for individual growth and collective empowerment.
With the support of the experts at BEAM Career Education, the Muslim Student Union, Stanford Muslim Alumni Association, and the Markaz Resource Center have teamed up to launch MINARA, a new professional mentorship program for the Stanford Muslim community. Featuring one-on-one mentorship matches, industry night panels, and intimate mixers, this 8 month program is as innovative and dynamic as our alumni and student community.
What participants can expect:
- Easy-to-use platform: Connect with program organizers and participants through the Stanford Alumni Mentoring database or “SAM”
- Data-driven mentor/mentee matching: Based on your interest and expertise, you’ll be matched with a mentor/mentee. All participants will receive virtual training materials and support from our staff.
- Speaking Opportunities: Participate in a panel discussion on your industry or host a small dinner discussion about your career trajectory and your identity and/or faith in the workplace.
- Networking Events: Interact with a robust network of Muslim professionals and pre-professionals at in-person mixers.
- Each mentor/mentee pair should meet in-person or virtually at least three times during the duration of the program. However, the mentor/mentee pair will determine how frequently they would like to meet. All participants must:
- Outline specific goals and aspirations in a development plan for mentor/mentee relationship.
- Meet 1-2 times a quarter.
