The Pivot by CMO lab


Jan 14, 2021

Representation matters. No matter what industry, having diverse voices and leaders shows there’s a path to leadership for all. When it comes to mentorship, there’s a ton of value in having young professionals of diverse backgrounds having a mentor who looks like them and may have shared similar experiences. And for this to happen, we need platforms that bring people together to share their experiences, especially in a time where we may feel more disconnected from our peers more than ever.

In our first episode of Season 5 of The Pivot, we’re joined by Daanish Ahamed, Founder of PR Ramp, to discuss the inspiration behind PR Ramp, creating its flagship mentorship program and the importance of having diverse voices speak about their experiences to up and coming communications students.

PR Ramp, a Toronto-based public relations association helping students and recent grads jump start their career in communications. Founded in the summer of 2020, PR Ramp’s flagship mentorship program connects newcomers with communication practitioners for a one-hour session over Zoom.
