Join us for Speed Mentoring, a WISE Signature Event. This unique, interactive evening brings WISE members up close and personal with industry veterans and peers to discuss career topics in a small group setting.

You will get a seat at the table with a seasoned industry veteran and peers to discuss career and professional development topics that are important to you. The event is structured so that you are pre-assigned to a small, peer group roundtable. Mentors rotate among roundtables to allow each peer group to meet with multiple mentors. The style of this event provides a platform to participate in meaningful dialogue, and offers easy access to connect with peers and build strong relationships.
