Mentoring Circles Program 2014

We are excited to announce our 2014 Mentoring Circles Program!
A Mentoring Circle is a group of participants that meets for an agreed upon length of time on an ongoing basis for the purpose of discussing career and/or personal development topics.  Participants simultaneously act both as mentors and mentees under the guidance of a designated leader as they exchange experiences, challenges, opportunities, and advice for the purpose of enhancing self-confidence, communication skills, leadership practices, and commitment to one’s career.



Our 2014 mentoring circles program will run for a full year, beginning with:
