Who’s Your Momma: speed mentoring
The SheSays chapters in New York, London and Sydney are currently the only chapters in our network to run Who’s Your Momma, offering separate mentorship programs in addition to the traditional SheSays events. You are invited to the Chicago chapter’s foray into setting up our own mentorship program, kicking off with a Speed Mentoring event on June 25th hosted by Assemble!
Here’s how our event will work: You register for a specific table you would like to join – usually with two mentors and four mentees. Since there are VERY LIMITED seats, there will be a high demand and tickets will most likely sell out fast. So act now, as this is first come first serve. That said, if you register and are not able to attend please let us know ASAP so we may fill that coveted seat. If seats are full, then please add yourself to the waitlist in case there are cancellations.
6:30-7:45: Mentor Round Tables
Going forward, the program will connect individual mentors and mentees as part of a structured three-month mentorship plan. The details of this adventure will follow the kickoff event, so stay tuned!
