Mentoring Across Difference Program Orientation was Saturday, April 8th @ UNC Charlotte.  Thanks to Jodi Turner and UNC Charlotte for hosting the event.  We are so excited to report that we have 2 new schools, Cabarrus College and Carolinas College join Johnson C Smith University, UNC Charlotte and Queen's University as partners.

We are at 12 pairs and growing - black, white, Latina and Pakistani.  If you are interested in becoming a Mentor, please contact MAD Co-Chairs, Dorothy Counts-Scoggins and Donna Parker-Tate at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Graduation is upon you and it feels as though you have a finite amount of time to make decisions that will impact the rest of your life. Where will I live? What will my career be? How will I afford everything?

Although it feels as though every life decision needs to be figured out by the time you receive your diploma, take comfort in the fact that almost no one (not even the world’s most successful business men and women) knows exactly where they will or want to be 5, 10, 20 years after graduating from college.

Thank you to those of you who joined us last week at the annual WIE Mentoring Across Difference Celebration Luncheon at Johnson C. Smith University. We had a magnificent turn out and I know that all of the participants enjoyed the delicious lunch and the day's events - it was stirring to hear from the Mentees who are participating in the program and learn about the profound impact this program has on their lives.

As you may know, I am an enormous supporter of the Women's Inter-Cultural Exchange and this mentoring program, and am proud of the fact that Fifth Third Bank is a financial sponsor. I know that this is the beginning of an extended relationship between me and WIE's mentoring program.

Thanks to Our MAD Sponsors
