Got 15 minutes? Join us on #MentorTalks and you’ve got a mentor!

MentorTalks is a new, interactive event that puts exchange program alumni in touch with extraordinary mentors on a wide variety of topics.  The series runs on our Facebook page @internationalexchangealumni. You get a chance to learn a little about each mentor and their career, and then ask them questions on their topic, all in 15 minutes.

Storytelling is a powerful way to enhance understanding and be a catalyst for solutions on global issues. How can you tap into the creativity, strategy, and innovation needed for powerful storytelling? Entrepreneur, investor, theater artist, Zuckerberg Institute co-founder, mentor, and Fulbright alumnus Michael Littig discusses how you can identify, build, and share stories as part of your personal and professional life, and use those stories to create solutions on global issues.
