    Women in Leadership and Development presents WILD Mentorship, a learning series centralized on mentorship.

    We have gone WILD about mentorship! Come join us for a panel discussion and interactive session about mentoring. Give input and learn from our three established panelists, and then speed network to meet others and share what you have to offer as a mentor, or what you stand to gain as a mentee.

    Plus, stick around afterward for a casual happy hour to continue the conversation and networking!
