At Designlab we aim to provide a consistently high quality mentor experience. As such, we have a talented Mentor Lead Team, and the three members of this team have been declared the guardians of mentor experience! 

This team focuses primarily on:

  • Advocating for the mentor experience: to ensure our mentors are happy and fulfilled in their work. 
  • Monitoring mentor quality: to ensure our mentors are adhering to our high standards.

The mentor lead team is already underway planning activities and processes to ensure we have happy mentors — including elements like growth pathways. After all, we’ve found that a happy mentor is a better mentor, which leads to happier, productive, and more successful students.

This addition to our team signals an evolution in our continued focus on mentorship as a key part of the Designlab student experience. The high caliber of mentors we employ has always been a big part of what differentiates us from other UI/UX design educators, and we’re really excited to include these three faces to our diverse and experienced roster.

The Designlab team is elated to have this new Mentor Lead Team onboard to help lead mentor growth, reinvent our curriculum with a fresh industry perspective, create stronger design leadership programs, and generate new ways to collaborate with our students. We can't wait to see what they achieve and how they'll help improve our mentor experience, and thus our students’ success.
