Recognizing the gap in mentorship opportunities for immigrant communities and people of African descent,The Sisters Show has stepped in to contribute its modest mound in restoring parity.

The Mentor on the Spot segment of the show, according host Olay Ceesay, will enable participants to gain insight and industry knowledge from the Ceesay sisters regarding their careers.


“The aim is to help them become better prepared and to be knowledgeable about experience based issues from personalized perspectives”, added Olay of the show whose hosts have a proven track record of leadership across various industries.
