Below you will find space to elaborate on the type of wisdom and knowledge you are most comfortable sharing with mentees. You may also add additional topics mentees may enjoy speaking to you about.

Information provided below will be used to match you with mentees who most benefit from your wisdom and to provide you with space to share additional areas of expertise that you may not have been able to expose on the previous page.

The IGDA cannot guarantee all mentees will fit your area of expertise. We do our best based on the information provided by the mentee.

Providing at least three (3) of your areas of expertise is required and greatly impacts the experience of both you and your mentees.
