RELISH is a program of The Racial Equity in Supportive Housing Workgroup (RESH).
This program aims to provide Black emerging leaders in the nonprofit homeless and housing sector with the management, leadership, and networking skills required for upward mobility in the industry. The program will be held at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. RELISH will provide a cohort with a 24-week intensive learning and mentoring program designed to engage participants in a robust, tangible experience that may help prepare them for an increased level of managerial opportunities. In addition to (6) bi-weekly seminars, participants will be paired with a Black executive leader who will serve as their mentor, assisting in the practical application of the coursework, and providing additional support and networking opportunities. Mentors and mentees are expected to meet up to 12 sessions for the duration of the program.
