Help Us Welcome Our 2018 Mentoring Program Participants!
The Women's Leadership Council invites you to a special dinner at the Westside Tavern with our Mentor Program participants for 2018. At our last luncheon, members had an opportunity to briefly meet these five amazing young women and we promised there would be an opportunity to get together with them in a smaller group setting. This dinner is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about them and how you can help them navigate their professional careers.
