The Shadowing Employment for Exposure and Knowledge (“SEEK”) Initiative encourages young women in underserved communities to shadow professionals in various fields and expose them to employment and career opportunities.
SEEK is an integrated mentoring approach where young women can interact with professionals in their place of business.
Our goal is to further their understanding of numerous careers with first-hand shadowing experience.
“You can’t be what you can’t see.”

There is a shortage of minority leaders in diverse roles within Corporate America. Though minority groups, such as Blacks, Latinxs, and Native Americans represent roughly 30 percent of the American population, they fill only 3 percent of senior management positions at American corporations and nonprofits. From that 3 percent, less than 2 percent of senior leadership roles are filled by Black and Hispanic women, according to the 2017 Women in the Workplace Report.
Minority representation in the workforce is vital to the growth of the economy, and the ability to provide underrepresented young women the opportunity to meet with professionals of their desired career field allows them to make informed life decisions.
SEEK will work with high schools, community colleges and organizations to recruit highly motivated young women.
We understand that success in the workplace is the result of having access to career and psychosocial support that mentors, sponsors, and special peers can provide. We are looking for professional female volunteers with an invested interest in philanthropy, youth empowerment and career building ("Sheroes").
