      The Wellesley approach to mentorship design is relevant to institutions of all types and sizes and takes in to account people, process, and culture to ensure sustainability and promote scale. Come learn how to integrate a modern approach to mentorship, scale your services, and integrate thoughtfully to ensure longevity and success.

      • Understand key components driving the need for modern approaches to mentorship;

      Jennifer Pollard

      Jennifer Pollard, Director, Operations and Analytics, Wellesley College Career Education

      Pollard earned her B.S. in marketing from Bentley University and a master’s in higher education and educational technology from George Mason University. She brings both corporate and higher education experience to Wellesley College. As a client strategist for a digital agency, Pollard managed large-scale marketing research and positioning projects for companies such as eBay, Target, Starbucks, and Whirlpool. After leaving corporate to pursue her passion for higher education, she spent more than three years at George Mason University’s career center where she defined and executed comprehensive marketing and assessment strategies, launched a mobile application to drive event engagement, and presented at regional and national conferences on the importance of visual communication in sharing outcomes and increasing reporting transparency.

      Pollard is thrilled to bring her passion for education to Wellesley to support the career education mission of “preparing and inspiring every Wellesley woman to craft a lifetime of opportunity and realize her full potential.” The Wellesley Hive, in partnership with PeopleGrove, has provided a platform to support lifelong Wellesley alumni engagement while promoting the career development of current students. Through mentorship, students and alumni help one another discover their voices, envision the lives they want to lead, and find support as they navigate various stages in their careers and personal lives.
