2017 Mentors

Executive Mentors

Relationships matter. That's why a major emphasis of the program is on introducing the Richter Scholars to both the established leaders in the field and to up-and-coming future leaders. There are two mentorship programs, Executive and Junior, along with a very special networking opportunity.
