This program is designed to be flexible and self-guided so that it can fit easily into your schedule. The projected time commitment is 7-8 hours per month, which is broken down into workshops, small group and mentor meetings, and asynchronous work. There will be one, 2-hour workshop per month in addition to a 1-hour meeting with a small group of members in your cohort once per month. The workshops and small group meetings are required. The 1:1 mentor meetings are optional and are available through sign-up. While there is a timeline for the program, asynchronous work can be completed whenever you have time in your schedule.
The workshops will be held on Wednesday evenings once a month.
Expect to work 2 hours a week, whether that is the 2-hour workshop, 2-hours of asynchronous work, or 2-hours of small group/mentor meetings.
To give an example, the cohort has the 2-hour workshop in the first week, so you decide not to do any more work that week. The next week, you decide to do 2 hours of asynchronous work. The third week, you have your small group meeting and a 1:1 mentor meeting, which takes about 2 hours in total. After receiving feedback from your meetings, you decide to work 2 hours on your project in the fourth week, which makes 8 hours for the entire month.
