Mentoring Workshops

2017 Mentoring Workshops

We are expanding the programming of the mentoring program beyond the individually matched mentoring pairs to help bring more programming and content to the mentee level of our membership. We will host two mentoring workshops focusing on networking both lead by our very own Karen Williams. The first mentoring workshop will be an interactive workshop on creating an elevator pitch and the second mentoring workshop will be on effective networking.

Have you ever been in a job interview, at a networking event, or a conference and you are asked the infamous “Tell Me About Yourself” question.   This situation is unavoidable so you want to make sure you have a concise, carefully planned 30-60-second elevator pitch that communicates your professional story and highlights your strengths, experiences, and expertise. In this interactive workshop you will create your own elevator pitch and practice delivering your pitch in a supportive, comfortable environment.
