Description

Successful leaders often credit a mentor for providing wisdom throughout their journeys. That dedicated support can be invaluable for any individual working to navigate new career and life choices.

In honor of National Mentoring Month, The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame, Center for Colorado Women’s History and Women of Denver will be joining forces to delve into the power of mentorship with a multi-generational panel of diverse community leaders.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the meaning and purpose of mentoring and how being a mentor differs from being a role model.
  • Discover the economic and inspirational power of mentorship.

  • Young professionals who want to create mentor relationships with leaders they admire.

*Light appetizers and refreshments will be provided.

*Doors open for networking at 6:00 p.m.; program begins at 6:30 p.m.
