Megan Hasselroth, M.A. ’16, was interviewed by NPR about her role as Executive Director of Lead(h)er, a nonprofit mentoring program focused on career and community development for women.
During the organization’s recent four-year celebration, Hasselroth honored the 2020 Mentor and Mentee of the Year and commented on the importance of the mentor/mentee relationship.
“I can attribute a significant amount of my current success to my mentor through Lead(h)er,” she said. “We want to empower women to give back to their communities in a greater way and to connect with other people in their lives, that utilize them as mentors, because mentorship is important. It’s essential business in our world today. Connection is the number-one thing that’s keeping people going and when you have someone you can lean on – not only about your professional situation, but your personal situation as well.”
Lead(h)er has made more than 300 mentor/mentee matches in the last four years. Hasselroth is a graduate of the Online Campus Master of Arts in Nonprofit Management program.
