2022 Speed Mentoring Roundtables


2022 Speed Mentoring, Presented by the Timberwolves & Lynx
Monday, August 8
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm 
Lexus Courtside Club, Target Center

WISE Twin Cities gathered with 70+ industry professionals and leaders for a great evening of networking, mentoring and connecting! 

This interactive event brought us up close and personal with industry leaders and peers through meaningful discussion around relevant topics, career journeys and professional development. This fast-paced, engaging event provided our members with a seat at the table. 12 mentors rotated through roundtables to allow each peer group to gain different perspectives from our mentors. 

Special thanks to Jennifer Marlin for providing complimentary self portraits during happy hour! Learn more about Jennifer Marlin at jennifermarlin.com or follow her on Instagram @jennifermarlinillustration.
