Right Start Agency Owner Mentorship Program
The Big “I" Diversity Council is pleased to launch its third mentorship group for underrepresented developing agency owners! This six-month program will help you better position your agency for success so that you can both gain and retain appointments with top carriers.

Identify as one of the following: racial/ethnic minority, under the age of 42, LGBTQ, OR woman;

Mentorship Project Overview
During the 6-month mentorship program developing agency owners (mentees) will have two mentors

Both mentors will individually connect with the developing agency owner for a one-hour monthly call to further discuss the principles outlined in the Right Start Training Series, including:
1. Understanding Your Agency Operating Style
2. Employees, Your Key to Increased Productivity
3. Preparing for the Company Visit
4. Yearly Planning & Agency Goal Setting
