How Circles Work
Live, Personalized Learning
In each Circle, participants and mentors form relationships and engage in direct discussion. Mentors tailor each circle to the needs of the participants.
Learn with your peers
Each Circle includes a small cohort of participants from different companies and backgrounds who are all interested in the Circle's topic.
Pay with your L&D budget
If your company has a budget or stipend for learning and development, registration fees for Plato Academy Circles usually qualify.
Learn from Engineering Leaders from top tech companies
Plato mentors are experienced engineering leaders from leading tech companies who are passionate about helping you grow your career.
Mentors get to know each participant in their circles, applying their insights and experience to each individual's context.

Beth was super helpful! She created helpful and insightful dialogues on how we can advance our careers as women. She provided frameworks as well as personal stories. I learned a lot from her but also other engineers in the group. Thank you!
