The Power of Personal Connection:
In an age of virtual meetings and broad social networks, it has never been more important to harness the power of personal connections in your career. One way to do this is by participating in mentorship; however, it can be a struggle to get the most out of that experience. How do you select the right mentor for you? What can you expect from a mentor or a mentee? Should I mentor someone in a different profession?
Join us for a discussion of how mentorship can work to help you develop personally and professionally. Whether you are a mentor, mentee, or just curious, we will share insights on how mentorship has impacted women in healthcare and strategies on how to get the most out of a mentorship experience.
