Rise

Be You, Bravely!

Rise is a mentor program that matches small groups of women from the senior class with female faculty and staff members to challenge perceived cultural and social norms at BC that affect women's sense of self. In the past, members of the program have met monthly over dinner to reflect on and discuss the issues they are facing as female-identifying seniors. Although we will not meet in person this year, we will gather monthly as a community over Zoom and will provide each participant with a stipend to purchase a meal to eat during each of the meetings.”  

Mentors will share different parts of their journeys through short talks to introduce different topics, which include:

  • Navigating friendships/relationships after BC
  • Forging your own path
  • Courage to make difficult decisions 
  • Life post-college
  • Defining success
