About this Event

Join us on Friday September 6th, 2019 from 8:30 - 10:30 am as APi Group Women in Construction and NAWIC Chapter 164 Mpls/St. Paul host a networking and speed mentoring event for women in the construction industry and trades. Meet senior leaders from APi Group, Ryan Companies, McGough, Parson's Electric, Kraus Anderson, Hunt Electric, and more as they share their advice and leadership stories.

​How does speed mentoring work?

  • Mentees will get the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a mentor for 9 minutes to ask them questions, learn about experiences, or seek advice.
  • After 9 minutes is up an alarm will sound signaling the end of the session.
  • There will be a 1 minute break between sessions, for the mentors to take notes from the previous session before the next session begins.
  • Mentees are then able to ​move on to the next available mentor, network with other mentees, or take notes from their previous session.
  • Another alarm will sound signaling the start of the next session.
  • ​A light breakfast and coffee will be available in the room during the session.

How to prepare for the event:

  • We encourage mentees to review the mentor biographies below and come prepared with questions to ask the mentors to make the most out of the sessions. ​ Use the Mentee Pre-Work Guide listed under resources.
  • Due to the ratio of mentors to mentees there may be small waiting lines to meet with specific mentors. To help keep the event moving, we encourage mentees to meet with any and all available mentors.

Meet The Mentors

See what others have said about past speed mentoring events...

"It's empowering to be able to ask company leaders about how they have succeeded and failed and to be able to learn from their experience. Worth the time investment."

"I walked out of the speed mentoring event with more knowledge and awareness on how to make the most out of opportunities and going the extra mile."

" All of the leaders are here to help you, whether they are in your organization or not, they are all there for the same purpose to provide knowledge, guidance, assistance and outlook to your career. Great experience!"
