The Power of (Wo)mentorship: Growing Through Meaningful Connections
The London Chapter of Women in Communications and Technology is kicking off our Fall 2019 season with a fun new event showcasing the power and value of mentorship. Led by career and personal counsellor Carolyn Laing, this interactive discussion will guide you through the ins and outs of being a mentor, finding a mentor, and getting the most out of this highly beneficial relationship.
The evening will also feature speakers from our local WCT community who have participated in mentorship and who can attest to the value they’ve received through the mutual exchange of knowledge and experience.
This is an evening about you, our members and supporters; celebrating what we have built together - a network of like-minded women with the common goal to connect, learn, and succeed. Join us for an evening of networking and growing together.
