Have you thought about Mentoring, but not sure if you “qualify”? Then this is the event for you!

We’ve assembled an incredible panel of dynamic and uplifting women who make mentoring a key priority in their life because of the life balance it provides. As the saying goes, the more you give, the more you get. Mentoring is a gift, not only for the mentee, but for your own personal and professional development.

Our panelists will share the personal benefits  they’ve received including self-awareness and professional insights they’ve experienced as mentors. They’ll talk about what they’ve enjoyed most about mentoring and also share words of encouragement that you would be an awesome mentor!!

The TeamWomenMN Mentor Program is a key pillar of TeamWomenMN. We invite you to learn more about our program by attending this event, networking with the prestigious women assembled and join our team!!
