LIA has created a mentorship and networking program to educate, inspire and grow the next generation of creatives.  We are offering a virtual mentoring experience to create personal connections through direct one-to-one interaction that has never been offered anywhere else in the industry.
The program is open to those currently in the industry between 21 through 31 years of age.  The goal of the program is to allow young creatives to learn from personal one-to-one interactions with some of the most experienced people working in our industry and related industries.  
Creative Conversations will allow young creatives to tap into the minds, expertise and experiences of respected industry stars. Their interaction is with not just one, but three top creative people from around the world. These personal e-mentoring sessions, of an hour each, with three different established industry leaders are private and bespoke. The goal of each session is to help mentees upskill to meet the ever-shifting demands of the global work environment. This exclusive and enriching program will be limited to approximately 50 mentees worldwide.
Creative Conversations will cover all disciplines with emphasis on skill development, how to work and navigate in these virtual times and how to establish future directions. This is a golden opportunity for young creatives, working in the industry, to enhance their career development and make invaluable connections.
The program will open in March and the mentorship sessions will take place between April and July 2021.


Dates: Virtual Sessions to take place April through July 2021
