Working in the Animation and Entertainment industry can be exciting! I know it’s all I dreamed of as a kid. However, turning that dream into a reality was a labor of love. Over the years,  I questioned whether I belonged but eventually found my voice and purpose. Now, I want to help others in non-creative or production roles find theirs and know that YOU’RE NOT AN IMPOSTER!

This circle is a great fit for you if you:

  • have gotten a job or two in the industry, but are feeling like you can’t move forward
  • want to take on more responsibility at work, but aren’t sure how to do that
  • have big career goals but are feeling insecure about how to reach them

This circle will help you:

  • understand that you can move through imposter syndrome
  • help you build resilience and confidence
  • recognize common challenges related to working in the animation industry and how to move through them
  • communicate with confidence
  • find opportunities that are meaningful to you and move toward them

During the circle, mentees will be expected to contribute to the bi-weekly conversations by bringing their challenges and potential solutions to the table and being ready to discuss. Mentees can expect encouragement, guidance, and accountability.
