Expand Your Horizons with StreetWise
Expanding Horizons is StreetWise Partners’ annual mentoring summit. The all-day event connects over 200 StreetWise job seekers with professionals from 20+ companies for a day of networking, mentorship, and skills building. Through this event, we raise critical funds to support our innovative mentoring program that delivers a path to employment for hundreds of individuals.
All current StreetWise mentees and alumni of the program are invited to participate in the Expanding Horizons workshops. Register today!
In the culminating event of the summit, presenting sponsor Jefferies and Elevating Black Voices, a StreetWise Partners community group, have joined together to present a Marquee Session on the important topic of stereotype threat. Stereotype threat disproportionately affects BIPOC professionals by putting individuals at risk of confirming existing biases towards their racial, gender, or cultural groups.
This special session is open to all members of the StreetWise community–including volunteers, mentees, supporters, and those interested in learning more! The session begins with a panel discussion and is followed by small group conversations where every attendee will have the opportunity to network and dive deeper into the topic of stereotype threat.
