To help the discussion on Women in Business and lead up to the Sobey Women in Business Symposium: Women in Entrepreneurship: Leading Change on October 15, 2021, The Network will be hosting a pre-event on October 7, 2021 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm focusing on creating an impact through mentorship. The Mentor-Mentee relationship is a vital connection that can provide support and resources for new and emerging women leaders, both personally and professionally. Developing and building this relationship can help achieve goals, develop expectations, build skills and obtain opportunities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed and affected people in many ways. It has also changed the networking game, often making it harder to meet face-to-face. Emerging from the pandemic will require us to re-evaluate how we can prioritize goals and remain productive in difficult times. With these added challenges and stresses, how can we leverage mentoring to help the next generation of women business leaders successfully navigate the future.
This event will be moderated by EnPoint’s Chantel Brine and will include a round table discussion from faculty of Kevin Schwenker, Dr. Margaret McKee past and present alumni of Morgan Baker Tucker and Sarah McCarthy, as well as notable alumni and entrepreneur Leah Skerry (BComm ‘09) and community leader Shakara Joseph.
