We intend to make a difference

Setting an intent for your work and life can provide both a compass and a filter.

When we set intentions, we build on the accomplishments, lessons, support and circumstances that got us here; these experiences made us ready to resolve to move forward. We can acknowledge mentors, collaborators, partners and, yes, even the difficult lessons for the motivation and ability to work for tangible gains.

A foundational principle at Pollinate is honouring the people who have entrusted us with co-creating the best possible mentoring, career development and business incubation programs. We continue to evolve and intend to use our abilities to connect people to get important things done in the most useful ways we can find. I am more excited than ever about the new offers we will roll out this spring.
Here is something we’re doing right now – and we need collaborators!

Over the course of 2020, our team resolved to amplify partnerships that deepen diversity and inclusion, and give people access to areas where they are underrepresented.
One amazing opportunity supports Black students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

In 2017, we were fortunate to partner with MentorNet and the Institute for African-American Mentoring in Computing Sciences (iAAMCS) to publish Undocumented Realities – first-person accounts of the experiences of African-American students in the field.
This is important context and self-education for non-Black mentors. In partnership with Dr. Monica Anderson and the University of Alabama, the 2017 module has been updated with current information and is now available for viewing and feedback for organizations supporting Black students in STEM. If that’s you, please get in touch.

Looking forward to collaborating and sharing your intentions in 2021.
