Following the popularity of Who's your Momma mentorship programs in New York, London, Sydney and most recently Chicago; the LA chapter is now launching their program with a free round tables mentoring event.
The WYMM program is a great way to meet inspiring mentors who can offer support and advice on your career in an informal setting. The set-up will be a 1 hour chat in small groups of 6 (each group made up of 2 mentors and 4 mentees). Mentees can take turns to ask a question, generating a group conversation. We're having a total of 6 groups at this first event, covering 3 different backgrounds: Creative, Strategy and Management. You can register for the background most relevant or interesting to you.
We have a wonderful mix of mentors lined up from Headspace, Saatchi&Saatchi, Huge, Pitch and B-Reel to name a few.
Zambezi is kindly offering up their beautiful office space in Venice to host the event. Each group will have their own space to chat openly and intimately with mentors and fellow mentees. There will be rooftop drinks and nibbles before and after so that all participants have a chance to mingle and meet all of the mentors.
