On September 27, 2023, the Las Vegas Hospitality Association Foundation (LVHAF) will launch its Inaugural Mentorship Program in partnership with the UNLV William F. Harrah College of Hospitality. The kick-off announcement will take place during the 2023-2024 Hospitality Mentor Reception at Caesars Palace.
The Mentorship Program represents a key initiative of LVHAF’s Strategic Plan – building diverse relationships between industry professionals and UNLV.
“We want to empower the next generation to become leaders of tomorrow by increasing their engagement with industry professionals of today,” said Stacey Purcell, chair of the mentorship program and chair-elect for the LVHAF. “Our goal is to start small, then grow the program as we move forward.”
The program will be aligned with the UNLV Harrah College of Hospitality’s Mentor Program, which has paired industry mentors with students for more than 20 years. Partnering with the college will allow LVHAF to connect with a large population of young, aspiring professionals.
