    ULI Philadelphia is excited to announce a new mentorship training program to engage professionals at every level—senior level leaders and emerging professionals—in making meaningful relationships and deepening efforts and skills to support one another in the industry. The goal of the four-part series is to teach participants how to utilize the mentor/mentee relationship in growing a network, identifying and attaining professional goals, and helping to foster a diverse and representative next generation of real estate professionals.
    The series will mix instruction from experienced speakers with interactive coaching to teach both mentees AND mentors how to employ the mentorship framework throughout their careers with an opportunity to directly connect to a mentor/ mentee relationship, with an emphasis on bridging gaps in diversity in the industry. At the end of the series, mentees and mentors will be encouraged to develop and share elevator pitches in a virtual round robin. While formal matches will not be made unless upon request, participants will gain the skills and confidence needed to make their own strategic, value-based matches for future development.
    The series will be facilitated by Clayton Mitchell, SVP Real Estate and Facilities, Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals and include guest presenters Rame Hemstreet, VP for Operations and Chief Sustainable Resources Officer, Kaiser Permanente and Dominique Casimir, VP Real Estate and Facilities, Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals.
