2014 Mentoring Circles Kick-Off Event!

We’re all set and ready to go for the 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.  The Mentoring Circles meet in a group format on equal footing, with no designated “mentors” or “mentees.” This allows group members to exchange experiences, challenges, opportunities, and advice for the purpose of enhancing self-confidence, communication skills, leadership practices, and commitment to one’s career. Last year’s Mentoring Circles were a great success, and we look forward to getting started this year.

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