Speed Mentoring with WWPR and Hager Sharp

Please join WWPR, in partnership with Hager Sharp, for an evening of speed mentoring which will bring together seasoned professional women in communications with women still carving their career paths. The program will enable mentors to share their knowledge, experience, tools and tips with young women coming up through the ranks.

Mentees will meet with three different mentors in small groups and explore subjects such as leadership, management and tips on developing a career path. The program will also include networking among the entire group so mentees will have the opportunity to meet all nine mentors and develop contacts among their peers.

Refreshments will be served.
